The key word here that can sort of help us determine whether it was ligament damage or not is "favoring".

He was favoring one side, but that doesn't mean he couldn't put any weight whatsoever on the affected leg.

Hopefully it's just a bruise as others have said, and as a precaution I'd want him to take the olympics off.

depending on how bad it was you might have to worry about infection if he plays on it without letting it heal up first.

Sweaty, dirty hockey equipment + an unhealed wound = bad idea. Wouldn't want it to get infected and then have them have to amputate the whole leg, would you?

Oh wow, right as I post there's an update.

Thank god that it's just a laceration. He might even be able to play tomorrow night depending on how it feels. I'd rather him take the week off and let it heel.

According to multiple sources via NHL live, it is not expected to be serious.

With Ranger luck he continues to stay healthy this year when it's obvious this isn't a playoff team.
But come next year if we're an obvious playoff contender he will be hurt a lot.

What they would do is use strong tape and put a patch on to cover the stitches from the equipment. It would probably have to be replaced after each period. But yeah I get what you're saying.

He was doing a 1-on-1 drill with Hank, went tumbling and Hank's skate hit him at an awkward angle.

Re: whether or not he plays tomorrow. Totally depends on how BAD a cut it is. 3 stitches? He plays. 30 stitches? He sits out, maybe for several games.

Yah, I'm just also thinking of how Gustavsson wasn't allowed to practice for a day or two after he had that heart procedure because the small incision they made was at risk for infection. But hey, we'll see what happens, I could be talking out my ass

Well it was the first thing I though of too when I heard it was a cut, ive never really known anything like this happening before so I have no idea either. Just seems like if you wrap tape around the leg and put a pad with antibiotic over it you could play.

Shinguards do not cover the side of the leg. The knee is always covered. The cut is probably on the side of the leg.

seriously, even if its a tweak, expect no gaby for like 5 games.

this should be interesting.
you do realize that there are only 3 games until the break?

so 3 games then 2 weeks off would be fine (if its just a tweak)

An laceration should be fully healed by the end of the olympic break.Assuming he's not too crazy about playing for slovakia.

first off he's probably fine..
secondly there's only 3 games left before the 2 week break..
maybe gabby doesn't want to play in olympics..



but, yes if he is hurt for the next 3 the season would be officially over

I was being sarcastic, just making fun of the people blowing this up.

RBK really needs to make their socks and jerseys laceration proof.

And make turtle neck undershirts with laceration proof neck guards.

No reason to risk these kinds of injuries when they can be prevented.

Rangers should let Gaborik heal 100% no reason to rush him back to the ice with stitches in his knee in a lost season.

I wonder how breathable laceration-proof material is. Might be the reason why we haven't seen it yet. Anybody here major in Fiber Science?

The old socks weren't nearly as penetrable as the current ones by skate blades. There are kevlar socks out there right now but they aren't in use by RBK yet (but players are free to wear them underneath the regular socks). RBK is working on a solution though.
