Los Angeles Kings ice hockey defenseman Robyn Regehr has a knee injury against the Chicago Blackhawks game, coach Darryl Sutter told on Thursday at National Hockey League.
Kings coach unviled the injury on the first off day after Game 2 of the Western Conference Final over the Chicago Blackhawks; It was earlier undisclosed. Regehr has been out since May 3, when he was hit by Anaheim Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne over the end boards in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round.
According to the sources – Asked if Regehr was cleared to skate, Sutter gushed, “Robyn’s not skating. When Robyn’s ready to skate, he’ll skate. It’s a knee injury, and obviously he’ll make that decision. If he could play on one leg, he would. He showed it last year in the playoffs … if there’s a way to skate, he’d be playing.”
Kings has used Jeff Schultz and Matt Greene in place of Regehr, one of their penalty-killers and more physical defensemen. The Los Angeles got injured defenseman Willie Mitchell back for the conference final. Game 3 of the best-of-7 series, tied 1-1 score, is Saturday at Staples Center.
