BLOG: Pouliot out “long term”

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers winger Benoit Pouliot will be out of the lineup for an undisclosed amount of time due to a shoulder injury suffered last night against the Islanders.

“Still long term. Shoulder injury, not day-to-day, and he’s got to see some doctors and have some tests to figure out what long term really is. He won’t play for a little while for sure,” said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan.

As for who will slide up and down the lineup, McLellan wasn’t ready to make any announcements when he spoke Monday.

“I think we need to let the day play out a little bit,” said McLellan. “Obviously, we’ve added a couple players on waivers. Let the day play out. We’ve sent some players back to the minors. At about 1:20 p.m., when we’re up in the air, we’ll get an update of where we are as a team and then begin to put some structure to lines and pairs and try to put it together real quick and play tomorrow.”
