New York Rangers forward Sammy Blais is expected to miss the remainder of the season after an incident with P.K. Subban in Sunday’s overtime win over the New Jersey.
Blais left Sunday’s 4-3 win in third period after falling awkwardly into the boards after his skate was clipped by that of Subban’s in the corner of the Devils’ end. Blais required help from a trainer to leave the ice, favouring his right leg. No penalty was assessed on the play.
Blais in his first season with the Rangers having traded in July from the St. Louis Blues along with a second-round pick for Pavel Buchnevich. He has four assists in 14 games this season.
