Simmonds Out With Yet To Be Determined Knee Injury

from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,

First, here’s the official update on Wayne Simmonds, from Terry Murray. As earlier noted, Simmonds did not practice this morning.

MURRAY: “He’s not coming with us on the trip. He had some swelling overnight, so with that, we’re going to leave him behind to get therapy, and he will get an MRI done on Monday, tomorrow. We’ll get a better idea, then, of what the extent of it all is, but there’s just too much swelling here, right now, to bring him on the trip, hoping that maybe he would be a part of the second game. It’s not going to happen.”

Now, for the hit. I’ll post the video a bit later, but for those who didn’t see the play, Simmonds’ injury took place after Drew Doughty leveled Edmonton’s Taylor Hall early in the second period. A full-team scrum quickly developed, and Simmonds got injured when Edmonton’s Ales Hemsky grabbed him from behind and pulled him down, with Simmonds’ leg seemingly getting caught underneath him as he got tangled in a mass of bodies.

continue to read what Murray thinks about these scrums after a clean hit…

Also, I posted the video earlier today of the Doughty hit, so go back to it and see how Simmonds hurt his knee too…
