This is a situation that all NHL teams are worried about when sending prospects who can play in the NHL team to tournaments like the World Junior Championships. This is an injury that not only removes the player from the game or tournament, but can also affect the availability of NHL games.
Sure, it’s too early to say, but it’s a Kirby Duck concern. The Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to be in the NHL match in 2020-21 and are likely to suffer serious wrist injuries in a warm-up game with the Russian team on Wednesday. While looking like a collision of innocent central ice, Duck injured his hand and went straight down the tunnel.
Duck reports X-rays, but there is no detailed information about the severity of the injury. The fear is that he has a broken wrist, and if so, during the World Junior Championships, and for quite some time with the Blackhawks, if not most of the 2020-21 NHL season. Will keep out.
It may be too early to speculate that this is a serious problem. Duck rushed south in a simple play where Duck tried to play the body in the neutral zone. There is a video of him pulling out of his gloves, and many assume the worst. He immediately headed to the bench and left the game.
When Duck was appointed team captain, the results of his X-rays and tests were widespread throughout Team Canada, and he made up the bulk of their game plan throughout the two-week tournament. For Blackhawk fans, this can be terrible news, and it’s certain that some fingers will cross in the next 24 hours.
