Last season Cam Fowler got hit hard with a knee-to-knee injury in the playoffs and wasn’t able to return for the rest of the playoffs because of that. Now, the Ducks are feeling the same way again with his injury he received in the 1st period of Friday night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Interviews after practice on Saturday October 21st. Here are some of the reactions that Head Coach Randy Carlyle, Jaycob Megna, Andrew Cogliano, and Brandon Montour had to say about the injury of fellow teammate, Cam Fowler,:
Randy Carlyle: We don’t try to look at (worse case) scenarios, especially from the standpoint of a players health. We have good medical people and capable trainers here that have found a way to get people back the right way. That’s the next stage.
Jaycob Megna: It was a terrible thing to see. He’s our leader back there on the blue-line. you hate to see anybody go down, especially him. I don’t think it’s a void one guy can fill. We all need to step up, like we did last night, and continue to help piece together those minutes he normally gives us.
Andrew Cogliano: You feel for the guy, because you know how big a part of the team he is, how good of a guy and how good of a player he is.
Brandon Montour: It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s the way it’s been going so far. There’s an opportunity for the young guys or other guys to play minutes. Guys are capable of doing it, and we’re up for the challenge.
LET’S GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
