Avalanche Lose Defenseman to Knee Injury

Avalanche Lose Defenseman to Knee Injury

Defenseman Jon Klemm of the Colorado Avalance sustained a knee injury in his team’s 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

“Our medical staff will definitely be working a lot on Jon in the next couple of days,” Colorado coach Bob Hartley said. “Hopefully the news will be good.”

The full extent of Klemm’s injury is unknown, but the team was hoping to determine his playing status by Monday, May 21st.

Klemm slammed into the boards four minutes into the third period of Game Four of the Western Conference finals. The experienced defenseman came out of the game, and the team medical staff evaluated his knee.

Klemm’s injury comes at a disadvantageous time for the Avalanche. The team is in the midst of the Western Conference after which, if they win against St. Louis, the team will be one step closer to a Stanley Cup victory. Klemm is known as a reliable player in pressure situations. He will likely be replaced by Bryan Muir or Nolan Pratt, who have 10 games of playoff experience combined.
