Tragic News Hits Ex-Boston Bruins Player

During a game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Calgary Flames, the Flames experienced a difficult moment in the second period when forward A.J. Greer had to leave the game due to a severe injury near the boards. Greer encountered an ankle injury following a minor tripping incident, where his left boot hit the kick plate along the board's edge, causing him significant pain and rendering him unable to put weight on his ankle.

Eric Francis, a team insider present at the match, described the evident distress of Greer and his need for help to exit the ice. Columbus Blue Jackets insider Aaron Portzline reported on the troubling scene of Greer's left ankle twisting awkwardly against the boards.

The seriousness of the incident was clear during the break, with limited replays and only the real-time event broadcast from different perspectives. As the third period started, it was evident that Greer was missing from the bench, leading to worries about the extent of his injury.

On the platform previously known as Twitter, Francis conjectured that Greer might have injured his Achilles, suggesting a lengthy recovery period possibly lasting the rest of the season. This situation might require bringing up a player from the Wranglers.

Before facing Columbus, Greer had achieved six goals and a total of 10 points in 46 games for the season. As everyone anticipates a detailed update from the team and head coach Ryan Huska following thorough evaluations, the hockey world is collectively sending sincere hopes for Greer's quick and full recovery.
