Klefbom will play Wednesday after needed a couple of stitches below his right eye, reports Oilers web site. Klefbom took a stick to the face so one could say he's pretty fortunate to have escaped with just a black eye and two stitches. Klefbom's name has been thrown about as a possible trade acquisition for the Islanders in return for Travis Hamonic but that would seem unlikely as the Oilers need to add defensemen, not just do a swap.
Klefbom (illness) will play Friday against the Devils, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. Klefbom was held out of Thursday's practice due to illness, but took the ice for morning skate, and will play in Friday's matchup with New Jersey. Andrej Sekera (illness) isn't expected to suit up for the contest, meaning Klefbom could potentially skate alongside Darnell Nurse on the Oilers' top pairing in his absence.
Klefbom (illness) went through morning skate Friday, Bob Stauffer of Oilers radio reports. Klefbom missed practice Thursday due to illness, but his presence on the ice Friday suggests that he'll be available for the matchup with New Jersey.
Klefbom dished out a pair of assists in 24:50 of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Kings. Klefbom is heating up, managing two goals and five points in his last five games. The 22-year-old is logging heavy minutes, skating on the top power-play unit and has built off the 20 points he managed in 60 games last season. Considering he's now up to 10 points in 18 games this year, Klefbom is worth looking at on an offensively dangerous Oilers team.
Oscar Klefbom (undisclosed) returned to practice Saturday, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports.
