Davis Injured in Miami Win
by Mike McMahon/Staff Writer
WORCESTER, Mass. In the first period of Miami's 3-2 overtime win in the first round of the NCAA tournament, star forward Nathan Davis left the game with an apparent shoulder injury.
Davis, a Hobey Baker Award finalist last year, was out of the lineup twice during the regular season for significant periods of time, once for a separated shoulder.
Davis, a senior assistant captain and top-line center for the RedHawks, has 17 points in 20 games this season. He has 132 points (63 goals) in 137 career games.
"I'm not sure the extent," said Miami head coach Rico Blasi. "He had some ice on his upper body, it was an upper body injury. I'm not sure of the extent, and I'm really not sure when he'll be back."
ESPN-U, the network which carried the game, had a shot of Davis with his arm in a sling.
Davis was not available for comment after the game.
