Zherdev Rumored To Have Broken Hand

New York Rangers forward Nikolai Zherdev’s first ever World Championship has come to an early end. According to the official site of the Russian Hockey Federation, the right winger has been ruled out of Team Russia’s remaining two games after suffering what is rumored to be a broken hand. Zherdev sustained the injury to his left hand in his first game of the tournament, last Saturday’s qualification round match-up against the USA. - Beyond the Blueshirts
