Oilers’ Dylan Holloway to miss three months after second wrist surgery

Edmonton Oilers GM Ken Holland goes into depth on why top prospect Dylan Holloway needs a 2nd surgery to repair his wrist, after healing didn't go well from the first one in February, and will be out another three months at least recovering.

Edmonton Oilers forward prospect Dylan Holloway will miss at least three months after having a second surgery on his wrist.

The 2020 first-round pick previously had surgery to repair a scaphoid fracture in his wrist in March while he was playing at the University of Wisconsin. However, according to a statement from the team, “during the recovery process it was determined by Oilers medical staff and surgical hand specialists that he required further surgery.”

Holloway signed his entry-level contract with the Oilers in April and will rehab from his latest surgery in Edmonton.

The six-foot-one centre dominated the NCAA last season as a sophomore, scoring 11 goals and 35 points in 23 games.
