Elite defenseman placed on LTIR

On Friday afternoon, one of the top defensemen in the league was placed on Long-Term Injury due to a Lower Body injury.

The New York Rangers announced they have placed Norris winning defenseman Adam Fox on Long-Term Injury reserve due to a lower body injury he sustained on Thursday night.

During a 2-1 victory over the Hurricanes, he suffered a knee Injury and is now expected to miss the next 2-4 weeks as a result of the injury.

Fox, 25, had 3 goals and 8 assists for an impressive 11 points through 10 games so far this year.

Losing Fox will be a massive test for the Rangers who at 8-2-0 sit 3rd in the NHL standings.

Fox is widely regarded as the best defenseman in the league, as he drives an elite Rangers offense and makes very minimal mistakes in his defensive zone.

Will Fox win the Norris trophy this season?
