The Colorado Avalanche Hockey club announced today that forwards Ryan Smyth and Marek Svatos will be out indefinitely after suffering injuries in the second period of last night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings.
Smyth was released from a local hospital Saturday night after CT scan results on his head were negative. He regained consciousness on the ice following a collision with the padded partition near the Avalanche bench.
Svatos suffered a knee injury when he collided awkwardly with the boards in the corner of the Kings’ zone.
Both players will undergo further examination over the next few days with the Avalanche medical staff and a more precise diagnosis of their injuries will be known at that time.
