Colorado Avalanche forwards Ryan Smyth and Marek Svatos met with Avalanche medical personnel this afternoon to determine the exact nature of their injuries.
Ryan Smyth suffered a concussion after his collision with the padded partition near the Avalanche bench. Until he is symptom-free, he won’t be able to exercise or return to the ice. He also suffered a minor shoulder separation and will be out indefinitely.
Marek Svatos was diagnosed with a torn ACL and will require surgery. He will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
