Edmonton Oilers forward Zach Hyman is day-to-day with an injury and not ruled out for Tuesday's game against Toronto Maple Leafs, head coach Dave Tippett said.

Hyman took a hit from Brady Skjei of the Carolina Hurricanes in the third period on Saturday, left the ice favouring his right shoulder, and did not play another shift. He was absent from the team's practice on Monday, and Tippett did not elaborate on the nature his injury.

Goaltender Mike Smith remains sidelined with a lower-body injury and has been on injured reserve since Oct. 21. Duncan Keith could be an option against the Leafs as the defenceman has been working his way back from an upper-body injury.
