Douglas Murray Out With A Fractured Adam’s Apple

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,

Did get here in time to talk with Douglas Murray, who did not skate and won’t be playing tomorrow after a puck ramped up his stick and struck him in the throat…..

The problem is a fractured Adam’s apple that – if swelling occurs – would seriously and dangerously hamper his breathing.

.”What the doctors have told me, they call it prime real estate,” Murray said of the damaged area. “There’s not a lot of room there so any type of swelling becomes a major thing, though it’s nothing major right now.”

But right now, he feels fine.

“There’s nothing I can really feel. It’s more doctors that are going to make a decision on it. It can get a lot worse and it’s something you don’t want to mess around with,” he said. “Right now I just listen to what the doctors say.”
