Andrei Kostitsyn Not Playing In Olympics

Is this injury more serious then we expected? Looks like he has been taken off the roster for Team Belarus. Hopefully this just means he needs the extra two weeks to be close to 100% for the Habs.

From Twitter:

"RT @touteparpillee: Belarus has removed #Habs A. Kostitsyn from its roster due to knee injury. (via @GagnonFrancois)"

EDIT:

Confirmed by rds:

According to rds, Andrei will not play during the Olympics; he did not receive the green light. If I interpret the article correctly, according to the IHF regulation, today’s 23 men rosters are “final” and, no matter what happens, can’t be modified. Andrei’s name is not on the final Belarusian roster.
