LOS ANGEGLES, Calif. – Los Angeles Kings forward Simon Gagne is not travelling with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip due to an upper body injury.
The team confirmed Tuesday that the 31-year-old veteran will remain in L.A. and is expected to be placed on injured reserve within 24 hours.
Kings officials would not confirm that Gagne is suffering from a concussion after getting “banged up” and sitting out the third period of Monday’s 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.
The seven-time 20-goal scorer has a history of concussions and other injuries. He was shut down in the 2007-08 season after being diagnosed with a concussion.
The Kings take on the Blackhawks in Chicago on Wednesday and visit Winnipeg on Thursday.
Yes, they really spelled “Los Angeles”, “Los Angegles.” Let’s see if it’s still there by the time you click on the above link. I can’t figure out if it is intentional, like “defence” or “offence” or some kind of fucked up insult. If so, Canandians suck.
Oh, shall we break out an oldie but goodie from Surly? Who didn’t see this coming? Surly? Let’s analyze Simon Gagne’s history of injuries…we have one more to add it seems.
Does Andrei Loktionov stay? Does Trent Hunter get the spot? Gross. Does Dwight “I have NHL experience playing as Kopitar’s left wing under Terry Murray so that should count as something” King get a call up while Lokti goes down? Brandon Kozun anyone? Anyone? Bastards.
