Another bad injury break (pun possibly intended, depending on your pun appreciation) for Ottawa in last night’s 4-2 loss to the Flyers.
Veteran winger Milan Michalek suffered a broken right index finger and is out indefinitely, the club announced this morning. That puts Michalek on the shelf alongside goalie Andrew Hammond (concussion), forward Clarke MacArthur (concussion) and veteran d-man Chris Phillips (back).
Michalek, 30, was having a decent-yet-unspectacular campaign, with five goals and eight points through 24 games. That said, his TOI per game was up from last year (16:22 to 16:50).
