Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Smith left Tuesday night’s 6-5 win over the Anaheim Ducks with an apparent leg injury.
According to TSN's Ryan Rishaug, it looked like teammate Devin Shore fell on Smith’s left leg during a skirmish near the Oilers crease midway through the second period. Smith left the game and was replaced by Mikko Koskinen.
After the game, Oilers head coach Dave Tippett said Smith is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury after he tweaked something on the play. Tippett said they will know more after Smith sees the team medical staff on Wednesday.
Smith, 39, started 30 games last season for the Oilers and is 2-0 with a 1.92 goals against average so far this year.
