Nail Yakupov took a hard shot off his foot and left the game, early in the third period. The Oilers young forward did not return. Head Coach Dallas Eakins told the media following the game that an update on the injury will have to wait until tomorrow.
Eakins said that he doesn’t expect Yakupov to practice with the team at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park, tomorrow morning.
“That was a hard shot in not a good spot on his foot and I believe they were looking at it now,” Eakins said after the game. “But in my experience, when a guy leaves a game he rarely practices the next day. So we’ll have to get an update tomorrow on that.”
