Stuart Breaks Jaw; Out Indefinitely

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Brad Stuart’s jaw was broken last night in Calgary. He was hit in the face by a shoulder from Kostopoulis. He went down hard and when he finally left the ice he was spitting blood and very angry. He’ll need to surgery to set the jaw and will probably be taking his meals through a straw for a while. There’s no telling at this point how much time he’ll miss.

This is very bad news for a Red Wings team already hard hit by injuries. It looks like it won’t be getting any easier any time soon.

I really didn’t like this hit. In the replay it looks like Kostopoulis clearly targeted the head. We’ll see what the league decides but I won’t be surprised if he’s suspended.

In the meantime let’s all wish Stuart a speedy recovery!
