North Dakota’s Brock Nelson, who left Thursday’s semifinal loss to Michigan on a stretcher after going into the boards back-first, has a fracture in his tail bone and an inguinal sprain, the Grand Forks Herald reported.

That injury requires six to eight weeks of recovery time, the newspaper reported.

    He’s lucky. He was scooting along pretty good. I was worried it might be worse than this. It was a good clean hit, he was just exposed after taking the shot. Nelson had a rough tournament. He played well against Denver but took some brutal hits.

    Nothing but class, as always.

  • Why USCHO?

    Why does USCHO think it is OK to let people post crap like our BC friend here – calling Sioux fans idiots. Just like the NCAA – they don’t like UND.

    Wait, this guy is from Boston and he’s calling others obnoxious? Wow, the hypocrisy is so thick you could cut it.

    Glad the injury wasn’t as serious as it could have been. This Miami fan and hockey parent wishes Brock a speedy recovery and the opportunity to get back on the ice ASAP.
