Injured last week, Markus Granlund and Daniel Carr underwent medical analysis to determine the exact nature of their injuries: they were not merciful, especially for the former.

Granlund, who collided accidentally with an opponent during last Friday's game against the ZSC Lions, suffered a rupture of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and will undergo surgery tomorrow. The expected recovery time is four to five months.

As for Carr, the Canadian suffered a thigh injury with the involvement of the adductor tendon during a practice session last Wednesday. He is expected to return after the international break in February.
