EDMONTON, Alberta — Edmonton Oilers winger Kailer Yamamoto is out with an ankle injury and listed week to week by the team.

He was hurt Sunday night in a win over the Los Angeles Kings.

A first-round pick by the Oilers in 2017, Yamamoto has nine goals and 12 assists in 21 games with Edmonton this season. He also has eight goals and eight assists in 23 games with Bakersfield of the American Hockey League.
