Edmonton Oilers general manager Ken Holland was busy at the NHL trade deadline adding Mike Green, Andreas Athanasiou, and Tyler Ennis to his roster in an effort to improve its depth. But just two games later his team has already lost one of those new players to injury.
That is the way things seem to be going for the Oilers right now as injuries keep adding up throughout their roster.
Green played 19 minutes in the Oilers’ 3-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday.
Athanasiou was also injured in that game, but is expected to play on Saturday when the Oilers host the Winnipeg Jets.
The Oilers enter the weekend in third place in the Pacific Division with 74 points, four points back of Vegas and only two points ahead of the non-playoff teams in the Western Conference.
