Edmonton Oilers placed defencemen Darnell Nurse and Slater Koekkoek on injured reserve Friday and moved goaltender Mike Smith to long-term injured reserve.
The Oilers recalled 2019 first-round pick Philip Broberg and blueliner William Lagesson from the AHL to fill for the two injured defencemen, who were hurt in Thursday's overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets.
TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports Nurse is believed to be dealing with a broken finger and expected to miss two-to-three weeks.
Broberg, selected eighth overall in 2019, has 10 assists in 13 games with the AHL's Bakersfield Condors this season. The 20-year-old defenceman had three goals and 13 points in 44 games with Skelleftea AIK of the Swedish Hockey League last season.
Smith, 39, has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since Oct. 19, when "tweaked something" in his third start of the season against the Anaheim Ducks. He has .920 save percentage and a 3.08 goals-against average in three games this season. He suffered a setback while practicing last week.
The Kingston, Ont. native signed a two-year, $4.4-million extension with Edmonton in July after posting a 21-6-2 record last season with a .923 save percentage and a 2.31 goals-against average.
Nurse has 11 assists in 16 games this season after posting a career-high 16 goals and 36 points in 56 games last season.
Koekkoek has one assist in 11 games this season.
