Columbus reveals devastating update on Adam Fantilli

Awful update.



For a struggling team, losing one of their top young players could be a devastating setback to what has already been a trying season. 

During last night's game against the Seattle Kraken, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Adam Fantilli suffered a potentially devastating injury after having been accidentally cut by a skate blade on his left leg. According to the Blue Jackets, he'll be further evaluated and will be unavailable for tomorrow night's game against the St. Louis Blues. 

"INJURY UPDATE: CBJ forward Adam Fantilli suffered a cut to his left leg from a skate blade in Sunday’s game at Seattle and will not play at St. Louis on Tuesday. He will receive further evaluation after the club returns to Columbus following the game vs. the Blues."

The video of the incident in which Fantilli was injured has been released: 

We've seen devastating injuries after players have been cut by skate blades in recent memory. Hopefully, Fantilli's injury isn't too serious and he can be back out on the ice before too long. 

Drafted 3rd overall by the Blue Jackets out of the University of Michigan, Fantilli has scored 12 goals and 15 assists in his first NHL season.
