Oilers F Eberle out 4-6 weeks with shoulder injury

Edmonton Oilers forward Jordan Eberle will miss four to six weeks with a shoulder injury, the team announced Wednesday.

Eberle left Tuesday night’s preseason game against the Arizona Coyotes in the first period after a collision against the wall. Eberle took a hit from Coyotes center Kyle Chipchura behind the Arizona net. He did not return.

Following the game, Eberle was seen wearing sling for his arm.

Eberle, 25, was the Oilers’ top scorer last season with 24 goals and 39 assists in 81 games.

Also Wednesday, the Oilers assigned four players to their AHL affiliate in Bakerfield, Calif., including top defense prospect Darnell Nurse.

“Darnell has to play a lot, lead that team, so when he gets the call, and he will, he’ll be ready,” Oilers coach Todd McLellan said in a tweet by the Oilers.

Nurse was the seventh overall pick in 2013.

Defenseman Martin Gernat and forwards Mitchell Moroz and Iiro Pakarinen were also sent to Bakerfield to bring the team’s training camp roster to 28 players.

The Oilers begin their season against the Blues in St. Louis on Oct. 8.
