EDMONTON, AB - Oilers netminder Cam Talbot is expected to be out for at least two weeks with an upper-body injury, Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan disclosed Thursday.
"We came home the other night after the game and he didn't feel good so we had it looked at," McLellan said. "He's obviously on IR now and we don't think he'll be available for at least two weeks and it could be longer."
McLellan said the injury occurred in Detroit.

"In Detroit, he had a little bit of an issue but it was minor," said McLellan. "Nobody even thought anything of it. He got sick in Buffalo and that off-time in Buffalo, without playing the scheduled start, allowed the injury to get a bit better. He came home and played here and didn't feel good."
Talbot is 10-10-1 this season with a 3.00 goals-against average and .903 save percentage. He also has one shutout.
