Horcoff Suffers A Damaged MCL

from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal,

In his third shift in Tuesday’s contest at Rexall Place, Shawn Horcoff collided with Corey Perry and felt his right knee pop. He did not return and will not be in the lineup for another eight weeks — at least that was the best guess from head coach Tom Renney.

Horcoff will have an MRI on Wednesday but he does have a damaged medial collateral ligament.

“He got his stick up between my legs. It was like a can opener and I felt it pop right away,” said Horcoff. “I took a faceoff and tried to finish the play but when I went to the net, I tried to stop. There was nothing. Hopefully it’s not that long.”


You can watch the play below, it happens at the beginning of the game recap video…

Cory Perry injured someone with a dirty play? NO!!!
The next thing you’re going to tell me is that the NHL exec in charge of discipline won’t do anything about it.

I didn’t see Perry stick out his knee specifically, but I’m not sure why they collided. They seemed to see each other coming but just didn’t alter course.

Not surprised it’s Perry involved. That kind of stuff seems to follow him around.

Perry clear skated into him on purpose. He saw him and instead fo trying to avoid him he actually moves to his right to hit him. Perry is a scum bag

In the words of Mickey Redmond:
“He’s lucky Datsyuk isn’t out there!”.
