BLOG: Gagner has a broken jaw

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers announced on Sunday that forward Sam Gagner will be out indefinitely with a broken jaw suffered last night against Vancouver.

Gagner collided on the side boards with Zack Kassian and Kassian got his stick up, knocking out some of Gagner's teeth before receiving a four-minute penalty.

Coach Eakins did mention that they were going to take an X-Ray on Gagner's jaw and as it turns out, the worst fears were realized.

“Kassian took his teeth out with his stick. We’re trying to find some and put some back in. I think he’ll get an x-ray on his jaw as well,” Eakins said last night.
