Hejduk suffered from shoulder injury, concussion
he Colorado Avalanche gave the San Jose Sharks a good scare, but in the end lacked the offensive balance needed to keep up with one of the more balanced teams in the NHL. While it seemed for a while the Avalanche might have had the talent to perhaps upset the Sharks, it was two crucial injuries that might have made all the difference.
It turns out that the concussion that many thought that Milan Hejduk was suffering from wasn’t the injury that was keeping him out of the series. After colliding with Paul Statsny in Game 3, Hejduk says he suffered from a shoulder injury that was much more severe. Per Adrian Dater of the Denver Post:
“I’ll have to go through some treatment with the shoulder,” Hejduk said. “Hopefully, it’s going to heal and be fine. But it was frustrating not to be out there.”
