Edmonton Oilers: Andrej Sekera Suffers Achilles Injury

The Edmonton Oilers announced that defenseman Andrej Sekera suffered an Achilles injury during his offseason training and will be out indefinitely. So far this year, luck hasn’t been on the Edmonton Oilers end. It all started last season with the bad start, and it kept piling up soon afterward. The media and the fans kept pointing the finger […] Edmonton Oilers: Andrej Sekera Suffers Achilles Injury - Oil On Whyte - Oil On Whyte - An Edmonton Oilers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and Mo

Uncle Rej is Down; Send Nudes, er, I Mean Send New Ds

Andrej Sekera is down. Again. Likely for the season. Where to from here? Nudes The best answer is to add a comparably versatile second pair defenseman to replace Seksy. An Achilles injury is almost certainly an LTIR (long term injured reserve) situation, and players on LTIR give you a certain measure of cap relief. It’s possible to access that cap relief to add a good player. The challenge to doing this is there aren’t many (maybe no?) high quality defenseman left on the market. Franson? Ga

Potential Replacements For Andrej Sekera

It’s been one day, the dust has settled and the time for anger and panic is gone. The situation is what it is, Andrej Sekera has suffered a torn Achilles tendon that is likely to end his 2018-19 season before it begins. The time to feel bad is over, it’s time for the Oilers to roll up their sleeves and figure out a solution to this problem. GM Peter Chiarelli was in a nearly identical spot one year ago, knowing that Sekera was going to miss a large chunk of the season and that his play woul

Oilers Options to Replace Sekera on Defense

Oilers Options to Replace Sekera on Defense

It’s a quiet mid-August afternoon for most clubs around the NHL, but the Edmonton Oilers and their fanbase caught a bad break. The club announced that defenseman Andrej Sekera will be out indefinitely after an off-season training injury that resulted in a torn Achilles tendon. The 32-year-old is coming off a 2017-18 season in which he missed 51 games due to a torn ACL. Here’s the press release from the Oilers website: “Oilers defenceman Andrej Sekera will be sidelined indefinitely foll

Potential replacements for Andrej Sekera

It’s now official, Andrej Sekera will miss at least six months after injuring his Achilles while training during the offseason. That leaves the Oilers with five experienced NHL defensemen: Oscar Klefbom, Adam Larson, Darnell Nurse (RFA), Kris Russell, and Matt Benning. To put it simply: they need another option there. It won’t be enough to pray that one of Evan Bouchard, Ethan Bear, or Kevin Gravel are ready to play. At this point, I think it’s safe to assume that the Oilers will put And

Moon over Marincin

Moon over Marincin

You can’t get past black and white and there’s no grey here today. Andrej Sekera was coming off a major injury and is well past 30, but he was quality by any measure and most certainly a big part of the Edmonton Oilers. The free-agent cupboard bare, the other 30 rosters set or damned near, and internal options are shy. This is a tough spot, no way to sugar coat it. THE ATHLETIC! Give The Athletic as a gift or get it yourself and join the fun! Offer is here, less than $4 a month! I find

Oilers Offseason: Let’s Talk About Seks Baby

Down goes Seksi! Down goes Seksi! For the love of Pearl, what has Andrej Sekera done to piss off the hockey gods? He’s done his Achilles in and another season is lost for him and now the Oilers are down to 5 proper NHL dmen. 6-9 months to recover from an Achilles tendon tear I guess and up to two years before things are back to “normal”… Unless you’re Erik Karlsson then time is only a construct for you… Last season Chiarelli knew Sekera was out for several months & didn't do an

Sekera injury cripples Oilers, leaves defenceman’s future in doubt

Andrej Sekera is limping towards the finish line of his career. Literally. After losing most of the 2017-18 season recuperating from anterior cruciate ligament surgery, a tear that happened in Round 2 of the 2017 playoffs, the Edmonton Oilers announced late Tuesday afternoon that Sekera had torn an Achilles tendon “in an off-season training session” and would be out indefinitely. He had surgery to repair the tear on Tuesday, the team said. GM Peter Chiarelli could not be reached for comment
