Ottawa Senators number one goaltender Pascal Leclaire missed practice Tuesday morning, after an errant puck hit him on the bench during Monday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Washington Capitals.
Senators general manager Bryan Murray confirmed to the Citizen that Leclaire has a broken jaw. The incident occurred when a deflected puck bounced off the glass behind the Senators bench and off Leclaire’s face.
Leclaire had been sitting out the game to nurse a “lower body” injury.
The Senators have recalled Mike Brodeur from Binghamton of the American Hockey League to serve as a back-up to Elliott for Wednesday’s game against the New Jersey Devils.
update 12:19pm, Updated reports now say broken cheekbone, not jaw.
