Holtby back at prac­tice after left eye in­jury

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Wash­ing­ton Capi­tals goal­tender Braden Holtby prac­tised Sun­day, ap­par­ently no worse for wear after Colum­bus Blue Jack­ets for­ward Cam Atkin­son in­ad­ver­tently wedged his stick through a hole in Holtby’s mask, in­jur­ing his left eye on Satur­day night. It’s un­clear if he’ll start against St. Louis on Mon­day, the first game of a back-to-back set, but Caps coach Todd Reirden said the team doesn’t in­tend to re­call an­other net­min­der, in­di­cat­ing Holtby is at least healthy enough to dress. “Ob­vi­ously any­thing with your eyes is a lit­tle scary,” Holtby said. “It’s for­tu­nate that it wasn’t any­thing too se­ri­ous.”
