Ankle Sprain Shuts Down Turris

The first really big news of the day isn't a trade, rather a big injury, as the Ottawa Senators are shutting down forward Kyle Turris for the rest of the year, as a high ankle sprain is not working for him at all these days.

The talented play-making centre has been in and out of the lineup a bit in recent weeks, but his last appearance, Saturday night against Calgary, appears to be his last, as he left the game early and didn't return.  An unfortunate finish to a bit of a disappointing season.

In 57 games this season, Turris picked up 13 goals and 30 points, which currently has him ranked 200th overall in pool scoring, which is surely to fall in the last six weeks, likely quite significantly.

For Stacey M., this now make three players on her roster that are now done for the rest of the season, increasing her team's chances of finishing 27th overall in the standings.  Her team only has 13 points to drop for that to happen and now down two forwards and a defenseman for the last six weeks, it is more than likely that it will happen.

Turris was taken in the 4th round of the draft, 87th overall this year by Stacey.
