KO with a head injury apparently. I don't like reading that tbh.

That didn’t look great on the replay. He’s gotta be getting close to hanging them up.

Let's put it this way.  I hope it's not a permanently debilitating injury, just one that convinces him that he would rather stay home and collect his checks on LTIR for a couple years.  That might be the best scenario for everyone involved right now.

Also, it's a Tage Thompson thread so...zoo giraffe GIF

Looks alot like the innocent plays that signaled the end for LaFontaine.

I respect the hell outta Okposo. I really hope he takes this as the signal to call it a career. I cringe every time he makes contact on the ice.

How on Earth is that not interference? Contact to the head and it happened literally in front of the ref.

Hope Kyle is okay. 

It could have just as easily been interference against Kyle, if you want to think about it like that.  In reality it wasn’t interference against anyone.  Just 2 guys skating in different directions, not seeing each other and running into each other.

Looked like purely accidental.   KO was shielded behind the ref.  I doubt either player saw the other.

Interested to see how Tage looks compared to last year in real games for the first time. 

Me too.  I’m hoping he plays a stronger game and has figured out how to use his size to better advantage.  

Typically, we die on the road in back to back, we have an especially poor record against Chicago as of late.  

Maybe with Lazar, Asplund, and Tage all trying to impress and stick with the big club we will get a better result

If that's all it takes for Kyle to be out for a game it's time for his family to rally and get him into another profession.

Whoa thats unfortunate. That linesman certainly contributed to blocking his vision to his right there. Hope he’s o.k.

The thing about the Okposo injury is when u look at the replay, u dont see Kyle looking both ways b4 jumping on the ice. Thats 1 of the 1st things u learn & for some reason he just didn't do it. So yeah its unfortunate but was also avoidable if he just shows more awareness to whats going on around him. Why he didn't is anyones guess.

Regardless i hope he's alright & i look forward to seeing what Tage can do.

If Lazar, Asplund, Tage can have some success, it'll be a big boost to our team & we surely need it. Can't count on Jack to score 4 goals every night but if we could i'd take it 😛

Better not trade for a forward. We need the defensive depth in case of injury.
