Edmonton Oilers defenceman Slater Koekkoek left Saturday's game against the Calgary Flames after just a few shifts when he took a hit from Flames' forward Sam Bennett.
Koekkoek, 27, is playing in his first season with the Oilers and has recorded one goal in 16 games.
Kailer Yamamoto was injured in the game as well, but head coach Dave Tippett didn't provide an update on either player after the game.
Tippett had no update on Koekkoek and Yamamoto health. Said he will meet with trainer in 15 minutes. #Oilers— Jason Gregor (@JasonGregor) February 21, 2021
