He was favoring his right side after getting up, and despite going out for another shift, he was ruled out for the remainder of the game during the first intermission.
UPDATE: D Libor Hajek will not return (knee sprain).— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) December 6, 2019
The timing of the injury is an unfortunate one for Hajek, as Marc Staal is close to returning to the lineup. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
