Rutger McGroarty now injured and dazed. Didn't see the play, but he appeared to crash into the boards behind the action. Brian Brewster and Jacob Truscott help him to a stretcher at the Zamboni door

There are many injuries that this could be but there is a lot of speculation on this being a tailbone injury.

McGroarty has been quite impressive this year with the University of Michigan in the NCAA leading them in points with 18 in 13 games. Hopefully, he can recover in a timely manner and go back to dominating the NCAA.
