Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
Reluctant to come clean on the initial diagnosis of the sprained MCL in his left knee two weeks ago, the captain said yesterday what most already figured: He’s out for at least a month.
“Four to five weeks is what (the doctors) are saying,” said Iginla, whose knee was injured when pinned awkwardly against the boards Jan. 4. “I’m hoping for three weeks and it’ll be three weeks after the all-star break but that’d be optimistic.”
And completely unrealistic. He hasn’t even bent his leg since being fitted for a brace following a hit by Florida’s Bryan Allen.
“It’s stiff,” said Iginla, who will have the knee examined by doctors again today.
