Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom sat out a few practices and games near the end of the pre-season as his head coach said he was just a little “banged up.”
The blueliner has been full-go for a couple of days now and says he’s ready to start the season fully healthy.
“I’m feeling 100% for sure,” said Klefbom. “It feels good to be on the ice again. I’m very excited and looking forward to the first game.”
Klefbom said his injury was just some soreness in his foot and he’s fully ready to play when the Oilers open the season against St. Louis on Thursday. Sitting out was a precaution to limit the regular season games he’d miss to start. It turns out, he won’t miss any.
