Ehn Breaks Leg
CHN Staff Report
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Air Force forward Eric Ehn, a finalist for last year's Hobey Baker Award, broke his left fibula Saturday when he collided feet first into the boards in the loss to Colorado College.
Ehn is expected to undergo further evaluation this week to determine the extent of the ligament damage, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.
The fibula is the smaller of the two bones connecting the knee to the ankle. Nonetheless, Ehn is likely out for the remainder of the regular season.
Ehn is the Falcons' leading scorer, and had an assist in Friday's 5-2 upset win over Denver. For the season, Ehn has six goals and 25 points. Last season, in 40 games, Ehn collected 24 goals and 64 points in leading Air Force to its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance after winning the Atlantic Hockey tournament.
