The Edmonton Oilers have officially placed forward Leon Draisaitl on injured reserve Monday.

Draisaitl has been dealing with concussion and eye issues which forced him to miss Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Senators.

Draisaitl has been skating on his own and he will be re-evaluated on Tuesday, according to the Edmonton Journal.

Draisaitl was injured during the team’s 5-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets last week and the injury was initially thought to be a concussion.

“The first two and-a-half days we were talking about Leon he had a black eye and his vision wasn’t good enough to be on the ice (practice).

The trainers weren’t telling me about a potential concussion but as time wore on, the eye got better, and he didn’t feel right,” Oilers head coach Todd McLellan told the Edmonton Journal last week.
