Worst news emerge on Filip Chytil in New York after today’s incident

Oh no…



The news out of New York on what happened with Rangers forward Filip Chytil this morning isn’t good.
During team’s practice, Chytil had to be helped off the ice after he reportedly looked in pain for five to seven minutes on the ice before he left.

Chytil, who has been sidelined with what is believed to be a concussion, had just returned to the Rangers and was participating in his second skate since sustaining the injury.

Later on Friday, Dan Rosen of reported that “Chytil suffered a setback from the upper-body injury he has been trying to recover from. He has been evaluated and will continue to be evaluated. He is at home in New York.”

Rosen did add that the Rangers aren’t calling the injury a concussion, though fans are aware that was the original ailment this season.

This is terrible news for the young forward, who has been out of the lineup since Nov. 2. Late in the second period, Chytil left the contest with the delayed effects of an early first-period collision that night with Jesper Fast, that probably probably resulted in the fourth concussion of his career. He appeared in only 10 games this season, recording six assists.

He even returned home to Czechia to ‘reset’ for his next phase of recovery in late December and appeared on the right path to make a return to action soon. He flew back to New York on Monday and had been cleared for non-contact practices and skates.

Chytil is only 24 years old, but has been sidelined 10 different times in-season since 2018-19. And let’s not forget he was missing from training camp for two weeks with an unidentified upper-body injury.

At this point, it’s sad to say but the kid needs to make the right call on his life and further complications before his future in the NHL…

Let’s hope for the best for Chytil.
