Star of the Washington Capitals will undergo facial reconstruction surgery

BY MARCO    JANUARY 6, 2023  (6:28 PM)
The moment John Carlson took a puck to the face and started to bleed all over the ice was among the most terrifying scenes of the year.


We've been waiting about a month for the injury update, and it's finally here:

The writer wrote that the Capitals are ''hoping'' to have Carlson back with the team before the playoffs start, which is in April, four months away. On a positive note Nicklas Backstrom and enforcer Tom Wilson are ready to return, and it'll be official once John Carlson has been played on IR. It appears as if Carlson will require facial-reconstruction surgery.

Carlson will be out of commission for months after undergoing major facial reconstructive surgery.Hopefully the Capitals can still make the last dance and welcome back Carlson just in time for playoff hockey.
