Shean Donovan out indefinitely

Bad news for the Senators, as rugged fourth-line winger Shean Donovan will be out indefinitely with an injured right knee. That's right, the Senators actually tweeted that it was a right knee injury, rather than hiding it as lower body (although it was extremely obvious). Donovan injured it last night when he and Matt Cooke collided knee-on-knee.  More information will be coming after further testing, but coach Cory Clouston suggested that Donovan will be out for a long time: "It looks pretty serious. We're not sure what extent - whether it's long term or real long term." Ouch - that does not sound good at all. 

Update: Sportsnet is suggesting it might be a season-ending injury. In November. Really terrible news for Donovan's future, as he is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. It's hard to get a new contract when you miss the majority of a season with a serious injury. Hopefully that wasn't Shean's last game in a Senators' sweater -- or any NHL sweater, for that matter.

As anyone who frequents this blog knows, Peter and I are huge fans of Donovan and the intangibles he brings to this team. Dono's speed and strong forecheck have created numerous opportunities for linemates Chris Kelly and Jarkko Ruutu, and has made that line one of the Senators' most effective. He'll be replaced on Saturday by Peter Regin, who has been a healthy scratch the past two games.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery from SheanDon.
