Bloody injury in Winnipeg: Nino Niederreiter takes skate to Achilles

The Winnipeg Jets are gearing up for a Stanley Cup Playoff run, so the last thing that they needed was a devastating injury to a veteran like Nino Niederreiter.

Unfortunately, reports are now emerging from Winnipeg revealing that the veteran winger has suffered a devastating injury, with a 2-mm cut to his achilles, but has reportedly avoided a long-term absence.

Nino Niederreiter narrowly avoided a serious Achilles injury 😳

He is a game-time decision for tomorrow.




This certainly isn't the first time we've seen a skate blade result in a serious injury, so the Jets and Neiderreiter will no doubt be very thankful that this one wasn't a long-term injury, as it could have been the type of incident that ended a career.

According to the report from John Lu, Neiderreiter is a game-time decision for the team's Tuesday matchup, and with a showdown against the Colorado Avalanche looming in the playoffs, he's a possibility of a quick return. In 75 games this season, the veteran has 18 goals and 33 points, and provides great experience and leadership in the Jets bottom-six, and if they are to make a deep run, they'll need him to get back on the ice at 100%.

Nino Niederreiter is speaking to the media today. He said he is feeling good to go after getting 8 stitches in his leg.

He also said the cut was very close to his achilles, but no damage as the cut protection socks saved him. All stitches are out now.
