Canes’ Lindholm out for the night with lower-body injury


The Carolina Hurricanes have been sneaky-scrappy so far in 2015-16, but they have to be a little concerned about the status of one of their best young scorers.

Elias Lindholm suffered a lower-body injury against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday and won’t return, according to various sources including Michael Smith of the Hurricanes.

It’s early, so no word yet on how serious this is beyond ending his involvement in Friday’s contest.

It appears as if the injury may have happened during this moment, as Stephanie (“My Regular Face”) shares in GIF form.

Update: Lindholm’s ended up winning 3-2, so there’s at least that for Carolina.
