Injury woes continue in Moose country

Press Release

Halifax Mooseheads General Manager Cam Russell announced this morning that the team will be without several veterans for the next few weeks due to injuries.

Forward Andrew Ryan will miss the next 3-4 weeks after undergoing emergency surgery last night to clean out an infection in his ankle. Twenty year old defenceman Brendan Duke is also out of the lineup this weekend with a whiplash injury and concussion symptoms suffered in Sunday’s 4-1 win in Charlottetown. Defenceman Matt Murphy, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in Friday’s loss to Quebec, is not expected to return to the lineup until after the Christmas break.

The Mooseheads are already missing regulars Jonathan Drouin (World Juniors), Zach Fucale (World Juniors), Nikolaj Ehlers (World Juniors B Division), and Ryan Falkenham (Out for the season after hip surgery).

The Club has called up goaltender Jacob Dempsey and defenceman Brandon Worthen. Both will be in the lineup this weekend in Baie-Comeau tonight and in Chicoutimi tomorrow night.
