BLOG: Anderson Fine After Tumble into the Boards on Saturday

Devils prospect had to be helped off the ice on Saturday against the Penguins

There was a scare on Saturday for the Devils when Joey Anderson slid feet first into the boards and had to be helped off the ice. The good news is that he was able to practice with the team on Sunday. 

"I feel a lot better just a little sore," he said. "My leg completely locked up on me and I couldn't bend my leg at all. So I got up and I was just trying to start moving it again. It took about half an hour and then I was finally able to start walking on it and now it's feeling much better. I skated today and it felt pretty good 

The initial injury for Anderson was a bit of a delayed reaction. 

"It didn't hurt right away," he said. "But then I couldn't move my leg at all. I was trying to bend it and skate and I'm like this isn't working. Then I got off the ice and started trying to walk a little bit and then it was like, oh boy, this is killing."

Anderson added that he had a similar injury last year in camp but hasn't had any issues since.
