Lundqvist out

Recommended Posts

It looks like that shot to the throat King Henri took off the Malone shot the other night caused an injury

 

NY POST

 

Sources have told The Post that Lundqvist did not develop a blood clot, nor is he suffering from nerve damage or post-concussion symptoms. But whatever it is, it will require a recovery period of at least four weeks, if not longer

Heard and interview with him.  Basically, he has a vascular injury.  Call it a bruise to his vascular system.

 

He could play, but it isn't a good idea.  Trauma, pressure, etc. could aggravate it, perhaps cause a clot and stroke.

 

So, the plan is to let it heal and settle down.  He can pretty much only do very light cardio until it heals.  He'll be reevaluated in a few weeks.

 

It was refreshing to hear a play talk so openly and detailed about an injury.  Now perhaps it is because of the nature of it.  It is unlikely a player is going to come up and cross check Henri to the neck -- unless they want to risk murder charges.
