Ryan Suter On His Injury

from Dan Myers of Wild.com,

When even Ryan Suter himself knew he was injured, you knew it was bad.

One of the most durable players of his generation, Suter sustained a serious ankle injury last week in Dallas, one which will end his season and require surgery.

If Suter played a different sport, such as basketball or baseball, it's possible his career would be over.

"The video doesn't do it justice," Suter said by telephone on Wednesday. "It's very fluky, an injury that doesn't happen very often in sports. The doctors have said that usually only see this type of injury in car accidents."

The injury was especially frustrating for Suter, considering the innocuous nature of the play, behind the Wild goal and along the wall, where Suter was battling for a loose puck with the Stars' Remi Elie.

Suter attempted to slow his speed down heading into the end wall, but the force of Elie on his back caused his right foot to crash violently into the wall.
