Concerns have been raised with the Minnesota Wild because forward Kirill Kaprizov could not finish Thursday night’s game against the Boston Bruins.
His match ended in a second period when Russia star Trent Frederick was injured. Wilde’s leading scorer left the snow on his own, but his own locker helped him get to the room.
We do not yet know the exact nature of the injury to Kaprizov, who is accused of injuring his upper body. Head coach Dean Evason was not very optimistic, however, at the press conference after his 3-2 victory.
“He’s a tough and nasty player. He’s not coming back into the game, so I would say it’s not good,” said the wild driver.
Evasan made a routine excursion against the Bruins representative, who sent him to his fertile hospital.
“We’re really bored with the way Kirill was injured. It’s a painful hit, and we do not want to see it in the league, do we? Puck was right there. All you have to do is hold on to it. The player is in a precarious position and you hit him from behind. This is something we often see and there are people who can solve this situation.
When he accepted Frederick’s check, Kaprizhov was in balance during the battle for defense over Puck with defenseman Matt Grzelsik. The Bruins player received a small penalty for giving the tape. He had to answer his gesture and had to fight Dmitry Kulikov.
“I think so [Kaprizov] Never mind, Frederick said after the game. I have no intention of hurting him. I played a hockey game and wanted to finish my checking. I never saw the sequence again. I think he fell as I came over him and it was hard to avoid contact. ”
Kaprizov has had a great second season in the National Hockey League. In 32 games so far in 2021-22, he has hit the target 14 times and provided 26 assists for 40 points.
