Yonkman tears up his knee


Top prospect Nolan Yonkman tore knee ligaments in a minor league game and likely will miss the duration of the season, Capitals General Manager George McPhee said, the latest setback in the defenseman's development.

Yonkman, 22, played in just 24 games with Washington's affiliate in Portland, Maine, last season due to various injuries and also missed most of training camp with health problems. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after taking an awkward fall following a fight in a game Friday night.

If it weren't for bad luck this kid would have none.......
