Holmgren said the injury had been bothering Timonen for a while but every time the club offered to get a detail MRI of the foot, he backed off.
Timonen took a shot off that foot on Feb. 16 at Montreal and it seemed to bother him ever since.
Obviously, Timonen, who frequently had a walking boot on at practice, feared the worst of an MRI before finally conceding to one this week.
A compression fracture is an indentation that can become a full fracture if not permitted to heal.
“The doctors thought where it is, the potential risk of something much worse if he got hit there in the same spot, you’d be asking for trouble,” Holmgren said. “So we shut him down."
