Dylan McIlrath Injures Knee (No Official Diagnosis/Prognosis Yet)

According to Jess Rubenstein of TheProspectPark, via Gregg Drinnan's tip, last night during the Moose Jaw Warriors against the Lethbriidge Hurricanes, 2010 1st round pick Dylan McIlrath went down with a knee injury in which no official diagnosis is available at this time, but initial indications are not good and an MRI will be performed today, Sunday.  Obviously any injury to McIlrath would be bad news for him, Moose Jaw and the New York Rangers and it is too early to speculate until we get the results of the testing so let us hope it is on lower scale of what it could be.  This would be the 4th major injury (Yogan, shoulder; McNaught, ankle; Maggio, upper body) to a Rangers prospect in Juniors, fifth if you count Dale Weise, hand/wrist in Hartford.

TheProspectpark Some bad news out of Moose Jaw Dylan McIlrath went down with a knee injury, severity at this time is unknown but 1st reports say not good

After a slow start to the season, both Dylan and his Moose Jaw Warriors had really picked up their games of late with Moose Jaw getting to 11-9-0-1 on the season and McIrath sitting at 2G 5A in 20 games with a -4 rating.  We will keep an eye out for any updates and bring them to you as soon as we see them.

Update 4:52 PM:   TheProspectpark Latest word from Moose Jaw is they still do nto have an exact answer but report Dylan in good spirits and hopeful he will not be out long

We certainly hope that Dylan is right about that being the case.
