iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Wednesday, Nov. 16, was a nightmare of a day for NHL fans, as three key players were diagnosed with long-term injuries.
One was New Jersey Devils’ winger Taylor Hall, who underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Hall is expect to be out three to four weeks, and was placed on injured reserve.
Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos has had injury problems in the past and they reared their ugly head again in the form of a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday. He has been ruled out indefinitely.
Finally, there was Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau, who had surgery on Wednesday on a finger he fractured in Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Wild. There is currently no timetable for his return.
