EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) - The Edmonton Oilers' big weekend win over the Detroit Red Wings just got very costly.

The Oilers on Tuesday placed veteran left wing Ethan Moreau on injured reserve with a dislocated right shoulder.

Moreau suffered the injury in the final minute of Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Red Wings, throwing a punch at Detroit's Danny Markov after the defenseman knocked down Jarret Stoll with a hard open-ice hit.

The 31-year-old Moreau, who did not dress for Edmonton's 5-2 over Phoenix on Monday, could require surgery to repair the injury, jeopardizing his chances of returning before the end of the regular season.

"Surgery is a definite option right now and it's probably the most realistic one," Moreau told the Edmonton Sun.

1st Period
None
2nd Period
Edmonton 2:50, Steve Staios 1 (Joffrey Lupul, Ryan Smyth)
3rd Period
Detroit 11:24, Pavel Datsyuk 2 (unassisted)
Edmonton 13:39, Petr Sykora 5 (Ladislav Smid, Patrick Thoresen)
Edmonton 15:49, Joffrey Lupul 3 (Daniel Tjarnqvist)

The big hit led to the Datsyuk goal at 11:24

Edmonton slashing - 2 min 19:34, E. Moreau served by B. Winchester
Edmonton roughing - 2 min 19:34, E. Moreau served by B. Winchester

So 8 minutes later instead of immediately after.

I think Moreau hurts the team more in the dressing room than on the scoresheet. He is a very effective penalty killer but could be just the opening that Robbie Schremp needs to get back to the big club. Or our chance to see the big Russian play. The Oil are being sued for signing him so we might as well see the guy in action.
