Kreider to Have Surgery on Broken Jaw

kreiderbcUpdate, 10:28 p.m.:
Robenhymer adds that Kreider (broken jaw), who is a seeing specialist tomorrow, will have surgery to repair the damage and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.

Original Post:
Julie Robenhymer at HockeyBuzz reports that Rangers 2009 first round pick Chris Kreider broke his jaw iduring Boston College’s 4-0 win over UNH tonight…

“It happened in the middle of the second period when his teammate, Brian Gibbons, made a clearing attempt along the boards in the neutral zone. Kreider had stumbled while turning around and on his way down, caught the puck in the face. It was apparent immediately that he was in serious pain and headed off the ice as soon as the trainer could get to him.”

Robenhymer adds that he was taken to the hospital, but the severity of the break has yet to be determined. He is out indefinitely.
I found it, it took Kreider a few weeks: He got hurt March 4 had surgery the next week and was back by March 25th.

ST. LOUIS — Boston College got a boost of morale and talent when it learned sophomore left wing Chris Kreider has been cleared to return for tonight’s NCAA Tournament game against Colorado College at the Scottrade Center.

Kreider, who suffered a broken jaw against New Hampshire March 4, underwent surgery the next week and has healed well enough to play.

Kreider (11 goals, 12 assists in 31 games) made it through the entire practice Tuesday, and coach Jerry York said he fared well.

“It was really a boost to all of us when Chris came out and not only put the uniform on in full gear, but the impact he had on practice,’’ said York. “He was really involved in all facets and he just makes us that much better of a club. You need your full arsenal when you go out and play these tournaments because you’re playing now the elite of the elite.’’
