Well, at least now we know what a lower body injury is.
Flyer Jake Voracek was in a walking boot last night after general manager Ron Hextall revealed that the team received “good news” from doctors in regards to Voracek’s lower-body injury.
“Jake’s gonna be our approximately two weeks,” Hextall said.
Voracek, who missed Saturday’s 4-2 win over Arizona and was seen wearing a walking boot after the game, will not need surgery, Hextall said, to repair a suspected left foot ailment.
Hextall, however, would not say if Voracek was hurt during a collision with Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk in the second period of Thursday’s 3-2 victory over Minnesota.
“I don’t want the enemy to know,” Hextall said with a grin.
