In what seems to be an alarming trend early in this NHL season, another player, Carolina Hurricanes Elias Lindholm has suffered an upper body injury that he received Friday night against the Los Angeles Kings, this according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
The 18 year old Lindholm had gone into last nights contest with one goal in four games that came on his lone shot on goal. He did add another shot on goal last night, but so far in his brief NHL career, he stands with just the one point.
Fans of the Hurricanes are watching closely to see if they decide to keep the overall fifth pick in the 2013 NHL Draft at the NHL level past the nine game deadline before they ‘burn’ a season from his entry level contract. Also last night, Justin Faulk worried the team when he suffered what looked to be a lower body injury, but he did eventually return to the game.
