That’s right folks, Oscar Klefbom who was just reported to be out with an infection following a leg laceration is out with what could be a concussion. This news was brought to light by Lowetide over at Oilers Nation. According to the news source, the Värmland Gate:

With many thanks to our Swedish Oiler fan Martin Lundén, there is an update on newly drafted Oiler Oscar Klefbom. As you may recall, Klefbom was selected 19th overall with the pick acquired from Los Angeles in exchange for winger Dustin Penner on trade deadline day.
Klefbom has made some fans concerned by stating that he intends to play out his contract with Färjestads BK of the Swedish Elite league, but seem to forget that Klefbom is also excited at the prospect of playing with so many Swedes in the Oilers’ lineup. Unfortunately for Klefbom, he has run into some injury issues as of late, and Martin Lundén brings us some clarity.
Swedish defenseman Oscar Klefbom, selected 19th overall at this year’s NHL Entry Draft, missed the Oilers development camp held early in July due to a schedule conflict. The conflict was with the team he is currently under contract with, Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League.
NHL.com writer Adam Kimelman reported Wednesday that Oscar Klefbom, Adam Larsson and Gabriel Landeskog will all miss Sweden’s junior camp which takes place next week at Lake Placid, NY.
