S-eye of Relief

by Anne

Phew! Some good news!

WCB Ethan Moreau, captain of the Edmonton Oilers, took a nasty blow to the eye via a high stick in the dying seconds of the Oilers' game v. the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Fortunately, after the swelling went down they were able to fully explore the damage and its *just* a bruised retina and scratched cornea. No surgery required and so far it appears there won't be any permanent damage. However, a visor likely would've prevented even this relatively minor injury.

Hooray! The poor boy has had so many injuries over the last few seasons, hopefully this won't turn into anything more serious later on.

  1. Soooo happy Ethan is alright!! He was one of the first non-Sabres that I developed a puckbunny-esque crush on.
