On Saturday night, former Capitals forward Jay Beagle blocked a shot late in the third period of a game between Vancouver Canucks and the Florida Panthers.
An injured Beagle left the ice and was unable to finish the game.
With the Canucks protecting a 3-2 lead, Beagle went to one knee and blocked a close-range slapshot from Panthers’ Mike Hoffman.
The puck went off Beagle’s right hand, just above the glove, and he was in a lot of pain.
Here’s another look.
Beagle finished his shift, but was unable to hold his stick with his right hand. The gritty center went to the dressing room as soon as he got back to the bench.
Canucks’ head coach, Travis Green, did not have any official update on Beagle’s status immediately after the game. However, Sportsnet reporter Iain MacIntyre indicated that Beagle may have broken a bone in his hand or wrist.
Hearing could be broken bone in hand or wrist for Jay Beagle. But that’s unconfirmed by #Canucks. Blocked Hoffman shot late in third.
