O’Reilly & Fehr Have Injuries

via Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

Ryan O’Reilly does not have any head or neck injuries. That’s the extremely good news, after his frightening collision into the boards last night in Minnesota.

But there is an injury, possibly a season-ending one, to his left shoulder. Let me caution that no official prognosis has been made by the team, and likely won’t happen for the next day or two.

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

Eric Fehr suffered a right shoulder injury when he collided with David Steckel in the neutral zone during Washington’s 4-2 loss to Vancouver Friday night and Coach Bruce Boudreau said that the right wing will be out 3-4 weeks. Fehr had his right arm in a sling on Saturday at KCI.

Steckel needs to learn to watch where he’s going.

Glad to hear about O’ Reilly.  Honestly, when I saw how he went into the boards it looked more like he hurt his shoulder than anything else.  I guess the stretcher was just precautionary.
