Report: Kings’ Stoll may have head, shoulder injuries

May 19, 2013, 9:11 PM EDT

The status of L.A. Kings forward Jarret Stoll remains a point of concern.

According to a pair of tweets from TSN hockey insider Darren Dreger, it’s “…possible, but unlikely” Stoll returns in the Western Conference semifinal series against the San Jose Sharks.

Stoll was hit by Sharks forward Raffi Torres in Game 1 of the series. Torres was suspended for the remainder of the series.

    How do you get a shoulder injury from a “slightly grazing” it?

    No A in my comment above. Whoops.

    Ya Torres’s suspension sure was “grossly unfair”…I don’t understand how you defend this guy.

    Big loss in the face off circle…..Sharks won’t miss Torres nearly as much…..

    :'( poor kings fan. He is just a 3rd liner! Just like torres is “just a 4th liner”.

    Stole was way more valuable than the #%^%*’Torres.

    This proves Torres’s principal point of contact was the shoulder. Thats why we defend him.

    So that’s why Stoll has a head injury? Sweet logic. Headshot = head injury. 1+1=2

    So kingsforever how did he get his shoulder injury? Walked into a wall on his way to the quiet room??

    Time to use your big boy brain.

      “It’s my understanding the primary injury is head related and shoulder issue is secondary.”

      Just like the hit.

    Did you dumb%#* kings fans ever stop to think maybe he slammed his head on the ice after taking a clean shoulder on shoulder hit? Seriously guys why dont you think of every alternative before you go running your mouth off.

      So you’re saying the hit didn’t violate the rules of the NHL, just the laws of physics. Gotcha. He somehow made a full force shoulder to shoulder hit that miraculously didn’t slow down Torres a notch, didn’t knock Stoll sideways at all, but spun him backwards. Between that and the delay of game whining in game 2, I wonder if there’s something in the water in San Jose that makes everything look like it hit a shoulder.

    Keep it up L.A. and San Jose fans, you are acting like Canuck fans
