The official word from the Kings on right wing Justin Williams, who was carried off the ice on a stretcher early in the first period Saturday after injuring his right leg, is that he has a lower-body injury.
What were the odds that would be the official announcement?
The idea of teams being vague about injuries is understandable on some level. Teams don’t want to be specific because they fear an opponent might poke at it when that player returns.
But Williams was carried off on a stretcher, won’t return tonight and will be re-evaluated tomorrow. A bit more information would be appropriate in this instance because the stretcher leads to thoughts of horrible injuries—and that might not be the case.
