Tyler Ennis injured

It wasn’t clear immediately that Tyler Ennis had suffered an injury that would have kept him out long-term had the Edmonton Oilers moved past the Chicago Blackhawks, but news on Monday revealed that is exactly what happened.

Because the NHL would not allow teams to discuss the extent of player injuries as part of the pandemic protocols, the Oilers were not allowed to share the severity of Ennis’ leg injury. But, according to a report from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Ennis did, in fact, break his leg.

When Ennis went down in Game 3 and was helped off the ice, then missed Game 4, things did not look promising. But to learn that Ennis broke his leg is something that is not only unfortunate for the player, could have implications on this offseason’s free agency.

The Oilers are said to be interested in re-signing Ennis and are hoping he’ll come in at a price tag of $1.5-million or under for one season. If his leg injury requires extended time away and extensive rehab, this shortened offseason could change things a bit.

If there’s more news on talks between the two sides, we’ll be sure to keep that information up to date.
