Jeff Skinner leaves the game with nasty-looking ankle injury

Recommended Posts

So what’s the vibe here? That looks BAD. Doesn’t feel like a situation where there could realistically be a quick return regardless of what it ends up being.

Looks like a season-ender to me. Maybe if it's a low grade sprain he could come back in April, I guess. But not great. 

Fire up the tank gifs! *ducks*

That ankle spun right round baby

tendons at best spiral fractures at worst

I'd almost rather it be a fracture. Those seem to heal quicker. Sprains tend to linger around forever.

Yeah. As someone who spiral fractured that area thanks to hockey- the tendons are usually messed up too. I still can’t do back crossovers on one side thanks to that. But I also don’t have good drugs and good surgery and good PT to work it back into playing shape. 

Who knows. Not good any way you slice it.

Yeah whatever it is its really bad...he was grabbing at it as soon as he hit the ice and then did the "scoot like an injured animal" on the ground...afraid it might be an ACL with how his skate stuck in the ice and his body twisted when he went down...

Doubt we see him anymore this year...hopefully it isn't the last time we see him in a Sabres uniform...

Whatever they inject in broken racehorses prior to a big purse is absolutely running in Skinners veins right now

Looked bad, maybe just a stinger?

Definitely one of my favorite players now. This guy is just incredible. Thank you hockey gods for giving this gift to our beloved Sabres.

Thankfully he came back but he was grabbing his ankle and it was definitely an ankle thing.

Glad he came back and looked good but I can easily see him as day to day and miss a game or two after this.

I think this is possible.  Post-game swelling and the like.

I'm still in awe of how he came back

Ankle, because what did Tom WIlson whack at right after the faceoff to begin the third?

Such a class act, that Tom Wilson.

I'm still upset that we didn't get some retribution, mitigated slightly by the win and Skinner coming back

The consensus of the meetup is with you.

Ya think he might have been embellishing a wee bit there?  Not saying he was but his return makes you wonder.

Can't say, it did bend by the ankle. I wonder if it's going to puff up tomorrow.
