Viktor Fasth needed to be assisted off the ice at Edmonton Oilers practice Monday after a collision left the netminder shaken up.

During a drill, forward Anton Lander collided with Fasth, who remained on the ice for several minutes.

Head coach Dallas Eakins told reporters Fasth has a sprained neck and that it doesn’t appear the Swede is concussed.

Fasth is 2-1-1 with a .899 save percentage and 2.76 goals-against average in four games with the Oilers since being acquired from the Anaheim Ducks on March 4.

The Oilers are expected to give an update on Fasth after the team’s medical staff assesses him.
