The Worst Is Confirmed For This Promising Prospect

Published October 1, 2023 at 7:58 PM

On Saturday night, 19-year-old Chicago Blackhawks prospect Samuel Savoie endured a significant injury. He collided, legs first, into the boards after an unsuccessful body check attempt. Now, we have information about the injury's nature. It turns out that Savoie suffered a femur injury, which required surgery at a medical facility in Minnesota.

Savoie's injury was so severe that he couldn't travel with the team. His junior team, The Gatineau Olympiques, confirmed that he underwent surgery earlier today to address the damage to his leg.

Regrettably, along with this medical update, we've learned that Savoie has been sidelined "indefinitely." It's a grim prospect, and it leaves one wondering if his season has prematurely come to an end before it even began.

For those who missed the incident last night, you can watch the full video of the injury and the immediate response from the medical team as they carefully transported Savoie off the ice on a stretcher.
