The New York Rangers announced today that MRI testing has confirmed that Rangers right wing Pavel Bure
has suffered a posterior tear of the medial meniscus and a Grade I medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprain in his left knee.
An MRI yesterday revealed the nature of the injury and Bure underwent a follow-up examination today by team physician and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrew Feldman. An estimated rehabilitation timetable will be established following the arthroscopic procedure, which has yet to be determined.
Bure sustained the injury to his left knee in the second period of the Friday night’s match vs. the Buffalo Sabres at Madison Square Garden. He currently ranks first on the Rangers with 14 goals and ranks third with 21 points in 27 games this season. Since joining the Rangers on March 18 last season, he has registered 26 goals and 15 assists for 41 points in 39 contests.
