Edmonton Oilers Forwards Playoff Hopes Down The Drain

Published May 10, 2023 at 1:09 PM

For Oilers winger Mattias Janmark, the postseason has not been easy thus far. He participated in the team's postseason debut against Los Angeles but left the game with a lower-body injury after deflecting a shot in the first period. After slamming his head against the boards in that game, Janmark came back to start their second-round series against Vegas, but Postmedia's Robert Tychkowski reports that he hasn't skated since, and there is no estimated time for him to return.

Janmark, an unrestricted free agent who joined Edmonton this summer, failed to make the team out of training camp and had to clear waivers in the first few days of October. However, he was called up after only four games with AHL Bakersfield and stayed with the Oilers for the remainder of the season.

The 30-year-old eventually played in 66 games for Edmonton throughout the regular season, notching 10 goals and 15 assists while maintaining his steady output. Janmark's lowest and greatest point totals throughout the previous three seasons were 24 and 25, respectively. He has now reached that mark three times in his seven-season career. For Edmonton, depth scoring has been a concern during the playoffs, but Janmark, one of their best depth scorers, will once again be sidelined for a short period of time.
