2009 Pontiac G6 Question: Replaced oil pan, should there have been a pickup line out of engine to pan?

Oil pump is internal on crank, but I did not see anything leading into pan from engine compartment, is that normal on this engine? Have other issues and questions, but this will give me a good start, and help me to direct my next line of questioning. Thanks in advance.

    How big was the rock? maybe it caused the oil pick-up to move in a way that is now restricting the oil intake.
