A fantasized look at some NHL injury news on a Monday morning.
Cam Ward had to leave the game in the 2nd period last night after being involved with a collision. Early guesses are not very optimistic but we'll wait for some form of official word before we jump to conclusions.
The diagnosis is not a good one for Jose Theodore as it was revealed that he has a torn groin. It's not clear whether or not he'd opt for surgery but I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that he won't be back this season.
Brad Richards went face first into the boards after taking a cheap hit from loser Patrick Kaleta. He looked dazed as he laid on the ice but managed to skate off under his own power straight to the locker room. He actually made it back shortly after and participated in the ensuing 5 minute powerplay so sounds like he'll be fine.
Nikita Nikitin had to leave yesterday's game with a UBI. He's considered day-to-day for now.
Chad LaRose is the newest concussion victim as he must have suffered one at some point during Saturday's game. No word on a timetable yet.
