Updated: Nov 25, 2021

In a season where everything has gone right for Edmonton so far, Oilers fans just got hit with some bad news this morning.

Darnell Nurse has been placed on the Injury Reserve, and is expected to miss between 2 to 4 weeks.

Nurse appeared in discomfort after the game against the Winnipeg Jets last night, after playing nearly 3 minutes of overtime.

The Oilers play 4 games in the final 11 days of November. They host Chicago tomorrow night, before heading out on a road trip where they play Dallas, Arizona and Vegas.

Darnell Nurse plays big minutes for this team, averaging 20:20 of ice-time at 5-on-5 per game, and is 5th in the NHL with 26:06 TOI / game

This is the first time Nurse has missed a game since the 2016/17 season. He has been logging the 6th most minutes in the NHL since then.

Nurse currently has 11 points (0 goals, 11 assists) in 16 games so far this season with the surging Oilers.
