Wideman Hospitalized With A Hematoma To His Leg

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

Not only is defenceman Dennis Wideman not in the lineup tonight for the Washington Capitals, there’s no telling when he might return.

Wideman is currently in a Washington hospital with a significant leg hematoma as a result of a hit Tuesday by Carolina’s Tuomo Ruutu.

A hematoma is caused by a contusion where blood escapes or leaks from an artery, vein or capillary into soft tissue, such as a muscle, where it does not belong.
