Bryan Little Injury

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,

You have to feel for Jets centre Bryan Little.

The 10-year NHL veteran missed the last 25 games of last season with a neck injury and hadn’t played a regular season game in more than seven months.

He was so looking forward to getting back into the lineup after a long off-season of skating on his own and training hard to get into game shape.

His first game back lasted all of two minutes and 48 seconds of ice time.

Little got tangled up with Carolina Hurricanes forward Bryan Bickell and suffered a lower body injury. He had trouble getting up and even when he did manage to stand, he fell back down before limping off the ice and heading straight to the dressing room. He did not return.

Jets coach Paul Maurice was not able to provide an update on the severity of Little’s injury.
