HC Davos can add another name to their injury list, with forward Gregory Sciaroni having to leave Wednesday’s semi-final game with a broken wrist.

Sciaroni, who scored the first goal of the game against Canada early in the first, was hit hard by Chris DiDomenico, who crushed Sciaroni’s wrist on the play. The Swiss forward would immediately leave the ice, with Davos announcing that he would miss the remainder of the tournament due to the injury.

Sciaroni, the overtime hero for Davos yesterday after helping Davos come back from behind to beat Jokerit, is the second player to leave the tournament for Davos with an injury. Just two days ago, defenseman Beat Forster was announced to be done for the next three weeks due to a hand injury of his own. Davos has been plagued with injuries recently, with the likes of Dick Axelsson, Marcus Paulsson and Dario Simion all currently out with injuries already.

The severity of Sciaroni’s injury has yet to be announced, but with the start of the Champions Hockey League semi-finals drawing near, it’s not the news Davos wanted to hear.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
