Video: Manson exits, won’t return after Forsberg hit

1 Comment

The hit that knocked Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson out of Friday night’s tilt will sideline him for the remainder of the contest.

Manson, caught by a high check from Nashville’s Filip Forsberg during Game 1 of the Ducks-Preds series, was ruled out during the second intermission, per ESPN.

It’s a significant loss for the Ducks, who are already without Kevin Bieksa on the blueline. Manson had a solid regular season for the Ducks, appearing in 71 games while averaging nearly 19 minutes a night. The son of ex-NHLer Dave Manson finished the year with five goals and 15 points.

Forsberg wasn’t penalized on the play.
