An Update On Ryan Johansen

Nashville, TN - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile gave this update on the condition of forward Ryan Johansen on Sunday:

"On Thursday, May 25, Ryan Johansen was treated for an acute compartment syndrome of the left thigh. Rapid diagnosis and treatment are critical to prevent complications. His symptoms developed shortly after the end of Game Four in Nashville, and as they progressed, he was diagnosed, transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and had surgery performed by head team physician Dr. Jed Kuhn within two hours of his diagnosis. As a result, he had no permanent injury to his muscle, nerves or blood vessels and we expect a full and complete recovery. The Predators would like to thank Vanderbilt Life Flight Paramedics, the VUMC Emergency Department, Operating Room Nurses, and Anesthesiologists for their expedient and excellent care."

Other than brain, heart, lung injury, this is serious stuff, Bill Guerin was the last NHL case I remember.

Here is an NFL account of the injury
