Filppula's knee

Anyone know how badly he was injured? Will he possibly return for the playoffs?

Last weeks Helsingin Sanomat (or rather Jortikka) confirmed that Filppula is done for the season. Since you're a fellow Finn: tästä oli kerrottu Jatkoajan foorumilla, Jokereiden osastolla, Loukkaantumistilanne-ketju.

Being a wings fan this is the first I've heard of his injury. Can anyone tell me how he hurt himself and type of injury? Thanks

It was in a game against HIFK a week ago. Apparently it was just a normal hit (although Jokerit coach Hannu Jortikka disagreed somewhat) by Toni Häppölä, Filppula just had bad luck. I don't know the exact english word for the injured part, either ligaments or MCL. It probably wont' hurt his preparations for next season too much.

Oh no, I hadn't heard about this until now, that's not good. Hope he recovers well..do you think the red wings will look differently at him now playwise??

I don't think so, apparently it's just a minor knee injury almost every hockey player has at some point of their career. Doesn't MCL mean medial collateral ligament? IANAD, but "polven sisäsiteen repeymä" = "torn MCL", right?
