Nick Kypreos joins Tim and Sid to discuss the Edmonton Oilers’ search for a new GM.

Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Puljujarvi underwent successful surgery for both his hips on Monday and will be out indefinitely, the team confirmed.

He is expected to make a full recovery and return in time for the Oilers’ training camp next season.

The injury had been bothering Puljujarvi for some time and the decision to go under the knife was made on Feb. 28.

Puljujarvi, 20, will finish the 2018-19 season having played 46 games for four goals, five assists and 16 penalty minutes.
