The Washington Capitals just got some devastating news today, regarding star defenseman John Carlson.

You've probably seen the images of him getting hit in the face with a puck last night. He had to leave for the hospital for further tests.

There is now an update on his condition. The good news is that he was able to leave the hospital. The (very) bad news is that he will be out indefinitely.

The Washington Capitals will lose their best defenseman for a long time, while they are in the thick of the race for a playoff spot.
