Washington Capitals head coach Todd Reirden confirmed our worst worries after the team’s morning skate. Reirden told reporters that the Caps will have to go without defenseman Michal Kempny “for an indefinite amount of time right now.”
Kempny was injured in an awkward tangle-up with Tampa Bay’s Cedric Paquette. Kempny needed help getting off the ice and after the game Head Coach Todd Reirden said, “it’s safe to say he’s going to miss some time.”
Reirden did not give a timeline on Kempny’s expected recovery and said tests are still being run on his injured leg.
