Referee Gord Dwyer is likely to miss several weeks after suffering facial fractures when he was hit by a puck during Wednesday night’s game at Columbus between the Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators.
The League said Thursday that Dwyer had several fractures of the orbital bone after taking a puck in the right side of the face during Nashville’s 4-3 shootout victory. He needed stitches but the League said he’s doing well and could be going home in a day or so.
Dwyer is expected to miss several weeks, but the League said there’s no indication of any long-term damage.
