Joel Eriksson Ek News
Minnesota Wild center Joel Eriksson Ek admitted that he tried to play with a broken leg in the first-round playoff series against Dallas. The 26-year-old was injured late in the regular season when he suffered a fractured fibula by blocking a shot with his leg. He was medically cleared to return for Game 3 against the Stars but Eriksson Ek managed to skate for only 19 seconds in the contest and ended up having surgery to fix his broken left leg. His injury was a big blow for Minnesota, as the Wild lost a player who was the team's fourth-highest scorer during the regular season with a career-high 61 points in 78 games. Eriksson Ek is expected to be fully healthy in time for training camp.
Minnesota Wild center Joel Eriksson Ek (undisclosed) is still under evaluation after exiting Friday's Game 3 against Dallas with an injury. The talented centerman made a surprise return from a leg injury but lasted for only 19 seconds in the game. Eriksson Ek had received the green light from the doctors to return, but it's possible that he re-aggravated the injury that kept him out for six games. Minnesota has done well in the series without Eriksson Ek, taking a 2-1 lead, but he has been a key cog in the top six and was fourth in scoring on the team during the regular season with 61 points in 78 games.
Minnesota Wild center Joel Eriksson Ek (lower body) is considered week-to-week after he was hurt in Thursday's clash with the Penguins. The 26-year-old suffered the injury by blocking a shot. It looks like Eriksson Ek is done for the regular season and might not be ready for the start of the playoffs either. It's awful news for the team, as Eriksson Ek has had a big career year with 61 points in 78 games. He's been averaging over a point per game over the last four weeks.
Minnesota Wild center Joel Eriksson Ek failed to complete Thursday's meeting with Pittsburgh due to a lower-body injury. He appeared to have hurt his ankle when it was hit by a slap shot from Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin. Eriksson Ek's night ended in the second period after he had recorded only 8:16 of ice time. Minnesota also lost Oskar Sundqvist to a lower-body injury in the contest. Eriksson Ek's injury is obviously the bigger blow, with the 26-year-old a major top-six piece. Eriksson Ek is enjoying a career year with 61 points amassed across 78 outings. It's yet to be determined if he can play Saturday against St. Louis.
