As hockey fans, we hear rumblings of injuries during the playoffs, but it's not until a team is eliminated that they are all revealed to us.
Monday morning, Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion spoke at his season-ending news conference and ran through a laundry list of injuries players played through during the postseason.
The Erik Karlsson injuries are the most ridiculous because of how he played and how much he played throughout the playoffs (534 minutes).
Once again, the fact that these athletes play through so much pain and do so at a high level proves how much tougher hockey players are than most athletes, and as fans, we appreciate the effort they put in each and every night and hope they heal as quickly as possible.
