Ryder Out Indefinitely

The Bruins opened up their Saturday afternoon game against the Flyers with the news that Michael Ryder's facial injury is much worse than first expected. Ryder has suffered a broken bone around his eye & nose, which will keep him out of the line-up indefinitely. Ryder will have his injury re-evaluated on Monday to see what the extent of the damage is and will find out if surgery is necessary.

Ryder has had a reboot of his career in Boston, picking up 19 goals and 17 assists in 52 games this season. As a Draft pick of Dennis', he's has been one of the only bright spots on his team, but if he is now to miss a lot of time, he star may burn out a bit. If surgery isn't necessary, Ryder may be able to return sooner than later, but will likely don a face mask or shield in his return.
