Video: Oilers’ Hendricks blocks Weber shot, leaves game (Updated)
Edmonton Oilers forward Matt Hendricks blocked a shot from Predators defenseman Shea Weber early in the first period Thursday night.
Hendricks took the shot off the knee and left the game.
Hendricks took Weber's slap-shot off the knee-cap, got X-rays, they came back negative, just having trouble bending leg, says Eakins.— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) November 28, 2014
Henrdricks is the second forward Edmonton has lost in a week due to an injury after blocking a shot.
Benoit Pouliot suffered a broken foot and has been placed on injured reserve after blocking a shot against the New Jersey Devils last week.
Jesse Joensuu is the lone extra forward currently on the Oilers’ roster. Depending on the severity of Hendricks’ injury, Edmonton would have to place him on IR in order to recall another forward.
