Video: What Happened to Evgeny Kuznetsov?

Evgeny Kuznetsov, a very highly touted prospect in the Washington Capitals organization received a horrible looking leg injury. It’s hard to see what happened in the video but judging by his expression it’s nothing good. He fell into the boards awkwardly and jammed his leg. If you have any other info on this please share with us in the comments.

    From Yahoo! Sports:

    “Details are scarce right now, but Lysenkov and other sources tell us
    Kuznetsov was taken to a local hospital right away for an MRI. It is
    suspected that he tore his MCL and/or ACL. We’re in no way Dr. House,
    but the early word is that Kuznetsov is lost for the remainder of the
    season and, depending on the MRI results, may need more medical
    attention, including a surgery.”
