David Clarkson, whose eye and possibly his cheek were damaged in a fight with Cody McCormick, will be checked Monday after swelling made it impossible to determine the extent of his facial injuries.
“He’s to see an ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist,” coach Randy Carlyle said Sunday morning. “That’s where we’re at. We’re all concerned. It’ll be one thing (a possible long-term injury) or another. The issue was that yesterday, the swelling was still up there and they can do a better assessment with the picture.”
Given that Clarkson has twice put himself into the middle of costly pre-season incidents (a 10-game suspension resulted from a brawl with the Sabres last September), Carlyle was asked about the veteran winger keeping emotions in check.
“There would be certain times where you’re best suited to turn the other cheek, depending on the opponent,” Carlyle said. “But it’s something that has been done and now we have to deal with it.”
