Oilers Key Forward Absent From Team: Injured?

Published May 10, 2023 at 9:08

The Edmonton Oilers have received worrisome news concerning one of their key forwards. Zach Hyman was noticeably absent from today's practice, indicating a potential injury sustained in a recent game, possibly due to hits he endured two games ago.

Of note, there were no players seen practicing in different jerseys, which suggests the absence of both top 6 and bottom 6 players.

Hyman appears to have been targeted by Nic Hague and Brayden McNabb, who delivered several questionable hits across two separate games. Hague's hit seemed to involve an attempted knee-to-knee collision in the last game, while McNabb caught him from an unexpected angle two games ago.

Unfortunately, the referees seemed preoccupied with managing the intensity of the playoffs, which left Hyman unprotected.

Game 4 is scheduled for Thursday night, with Vegas currently holding a 2-1 lead in the series.
