Oilers announce unfortunate injury news

Subsequent moves have been made.



The Edmonton Oilers were able to kick off the Kris Knoblauch era with a victory on home ice over the New York Islanders, but by the time they hit the ice again tonight against the visiting Seattle Kraken, they'll be short a handful of players thanks to injury.

Earlier today, the Oilers official PR account announced that forwards Mattias Janmark and Dylan Holloway have been placed on Long Term Injury Reserve. In their stead, defenseman Philip Broberg, forward Adam Erne and forward Raphael Lavoie have all been brought up from the Bakersfield Condors. 

Janmark has been out of action since late October when he suffered a shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Holloway suffered a knee injury in Edmonton's most recent game. 

Erne will be getting his second chance with the Oilers this season after having initially been waived; he's scored one goal in four games with the Condors. Broberg has played the same amount of games, registering a pair of assists. Meanwhile, Lavoie has scored an impressive seven points in the five AHL games that he's played this year. 

The Oilers will be taking on the Kraken tonight from Rogers Place starting at 8:30 PM EST. Can they make it a third straight victory?
