The Edmonton Oilers will be without Oscar Klefbom well into the new year as the defenseman is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks following finger surgery, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.

Klefbom suffered the injury against the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday. After the game, Oilers head coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters he expected Klefbom to miss "weeks not days."

The 25-year-old has already missed two games due to the injury this season.
