Bowling Green's Carpenter Suffers Another Setback
Out Indefinitely After Breaking Foot
CHN Staff Report
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio Bowling Green junior forward Ryan Carpenter fractured a bone in his foot at practice this week, the team announced Thursday.
Carpenter was hit in the foot by a puck during drills at practice Wednesday morning, sustaining the injury. He is out indefinitely, but it is not believed that surgery will be required.
Carpenter, coming off an 18-goal sophomore season, was named to the All-WCHA preseason team. But he has not appeared in a regular-season game for the Falcons yet this season. He suffered a wrist injury in an exhibition game, and was just set to return from that when he broke his foot.
A native of Oviedo, Fla., Carpenter had 11 goals as a freshman, and is 29-34—63 in two seasons for Bowling Green.
