It's an injury that could have been worsened with more aggravation over the course of the season. And post-op prognosis would have been worsened as well if the injury had been more severely aggravated as well.

Kind of a medium-sized risk for the Oilers to take on him playing this season given that kind of context.
Medium sized risk? No such thing as a medium sized risk when talking about the health of your #1C. And an injury that can only get worse unless the inevitable surgery occurs.
