TSN’s Bob McKenzie is reporting that Kirby Dach’s wrist is fractured. Dach was injured in Canada’s exhibition warm-up game against Russia before the World Juniors.
McKenzie offered addition insight into a potential timeline for Dach’s return.
A basic fracture generally results in a 4 to 6 week or 6 to 8 week absence but if surgery is required it could be considerably longer than that. But no decision on that has been made yet.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) December 24, 2020
The 2021 regular season is scheduled to begin three weeks from the day Dach was injured.
