WWYDW: Shut down Klefbom?

Oscar Klefbom hasn’t been the same this season. Last season was a breakout for Klefbom. He appeared to be on his way into evolving into a top-pairing defenceman.

Andrej Sekera placed on the Injured Reserve

It’s been a rough season for Andrej Sekera. He suffered an injury in last spring’s playoff series against the Ducks and had off-season surgery. He finally made his return to the Oilers on Dec. 21 but, unsurprisingly, hasn’t looked like the same steady presence on the blueline that he did last year. Things went from...
