BREAKING: Another Oilers Forward Suffers Significant Worrisome Injury

Published October 28, 2023 at 11:43

In a developing story, the Edmonton Oilers are grappling with the uncertainty surrounding Mattias Janmark's injury. Since McDavid's absence, Janmark was promoted to the top line beside Leon Draisaitl.

During Thursday night's game against the New York Rangers, Janmark's early exit from the game raised concerns. The incident occurred when he collided awkwardly with the boards and, clutching his shoulder, left the ice in visible pain. New information suggests that the injury may be more severe than initially thought.

Fans quickly noticed photos posted by former Oiler Georges Laraque, revealing Janmark wearing a sling on his right arm. This suggests that not only will he miss the upcoming Heritage Classic but that his absence could extend beyond that.


Despite recent criticisms regarding Janmark's ice time, the 30-year-old has been a valuable asset to the Oilers. While not a top-six forward, he contributes effectively on the fourth line and excels on the penalty kill. Although he has yet to tally a point in seven games this season, his 12 goals and 25 points in 66 games last season underline his importance to the team.

While losing Janmark is far from ideal, there is a glimmer of hope for the Oilers. Star player Connor McDavid is showing promising signs of a quicker recovery from an upper-body injury than initially expected.

His potential return for the upcoming clash against the Calgary Flames provides optimism for the team.
