Things just keep getting worse and worse for the Ottawa Senators.
Not only did the Sens suffer an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night, losing by a final score of 8 - 2, but they also lost one of their core forwards to injury.
Senators veteran Bobby Ryan could be seen clutching his hand as he left the ice after the second period of play, and now the Senators have confirmed that he did indeed suffer some kind of injury to his hand.
It's unclear at this time if the injury is serious or not, the Senators did not provide any updates other than to state that he would not be returning to the game with the Blackhawks.
Ryan has often been injured and has largely under performed during his tenure with the Senators, this will likely cause a great deal of frustration for fans of the team.
