Michal Kempny returned to Washington over the weekend disappointed after suffering another unlucky and bizarre injury.
On Saturday, while playing for the Hershey Bears, Kempny was injured during a break in play after being struck by an ice shoveler. The Czech defenseman was in Hershey to rehabilitate a torn Achilles he suffered over the offseason.
“I don’t think it’s too, too bad,” Bears head coach Spencer Carbery said of Kempny’s setback after the game. “Just an unfortunate situation.”
Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette also commented on Kempny’s unfortunate shovel incident.
