Dylan McIlrath Injury Update: MRI Results In

After nearly a week of waiting the Rangers and their fans finally have a result on the severity of the knee injury to 2010 1st round pick Dylan McIlrath.  The result will allow all Rangers fans to exhale as Jesse Spector of the Daily News is reporting that the MRI showed a mild MCL sprain which is certainly not a major knee injury and should require him to miss merely a few weeks and not the multiple months many of us were bracing ourselves for.  This is tremendous news and would seem to contradict what I was previously reading about the injury as there was speculation within the last 24 hours that he would not be seeing the ice anytime soon.  For a few weeks the truck will be in park while it gets a tune-up and then it will be right back to rolling over opponents for Moose Jaw in the WHL.
