We now know the details of Anton Forsberg's injury and it is horrifying

A pretty terrible moment happened over the weekend when Ottawa Senators goalie Anton Forsberg was injured during Saturday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

It seemed clear that the goaltender had suffered a lower body injury, but it wasn't clear exactly where the injury was. Unfortunately, he had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher.

However, we just got some details on his condition and it's much worse than we thought.

Indeed, the team announced that the goalie suffered not one, but two tears of the medial collateral ligament in both knees.

No need to tell you that this is an atrocious result!

Obviously, such an injury to both knees ends the Swedish goalie's season and I wouldn't be surprised if his career is even in jeopardy, especially since he is 30 years old.

To give you an idea, it's the same kind of injury that Carey Price suffered, but for Forsberg, it's in both knees at the same time, it's terrible!

This is the kind of injury that is a nightmare for all goalies.

Here is the sequence that led to Forsberg's injury:
