Krebs Achilles injury shouldn’t hurt draft stock
Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province: Soon to be 2019 NHL draft pick, Peyton Krebs, had surgery on Friday to repair a partially severed Achilles tendon. A skate blade cut through a ‘cut-proof sock.’
Healing time can be two-three weeks or up to six, therapy and strength work, and then normal activity in four to six months. He was likely two years away from being NHL ready.
The Vancouver Canucks pick at No. 10 and have already started looking for more medical information. GM Jim Benning doesn’t think it will affect his draft slot. The Canucks will interview Krebs again before the draft.
Ken Warren: The Ottawa Senators have signed defenseman Nick Ebert to a one-year, two-way deal. He’ll get $700,000 in the NHL and $300,000 in the minors.
New Jersey Devils: The Devils have signed Jesper Boqvist to a three-year, entry-level deal.
LA Kings: The Kings have signed 2018 sixth-round pick Johan Sodergran to a three-year entry-level deal. The 6′ 3″ 205 forward recorded 13 points in 42 games with Linkoping HC of the SHL. Sodergran could be attending their Development Camp at the end of the month.
