REPORT: OILERS PLACE DEFENSEMEN ON INJURY RESERVE & EXPECTED TO MISS MIN 1 MONTH

BY SKY
The Edmonton Oilers made it official at 4PM today, defensemen Ryan Murray has been placed on the injury reserve lisr with a back injury.

Advice: Murray last played Nov. 21 and has battled back problems his entire career. The Oilers needed to place someone on injured reserve as Ryan McLeod (high ankle sprain) was activated Friday. Murray has three assists in 13 games this season.


Murray has already been out of the lineup for fourteen straight games and is not on the horizon of recovering from his back injury.

Murray, who is 29 years of age, has been hit with a handful of injuries throughout his career, his absence could lead to a much longer time then just 30 days.


Markus Niemelainen figures to play on the third pairing with both Murray and Philip Broberg (ankle) unavailable, though Jason Demers could also be called up to fill a similar role.
