CANADA'S DEVON LEVI REVEALS IT WAS TIM STÜTZLE WHO INJURED HIM AT WORLD JUNIORS

More details are coming to light on the injury Team Canada's Devon Levi suffered while tending the net at the World Juniors this year. While nothing at all was said during the actual tournament, we found out just two days ago that Levi suffered some sort of injury early in the World Juniors that would keep him from playing for Northeastern University for another few weeks at least. During an interview with TSN's Geno Reda, Levi revealed more details.

Levi told Reda he had been injured in Canada's very first game on a shot that came from Germany's Tim Stützle, who is one of the early Calder favourites in the NHL this year. The shot broke one of his ribs. Not only did Levi continue playing through the painful injury, he was undefeated until the gold medal game, when Team USA beat Canada 2-0.


Northeastern U coach Jim Madigan told hockey reporter Mark Divver that playing through the injury unfortunately made things worse for Levi, leading to the missed time in the NCAA.

"It happened at the World Juniors and it wasn't identified," said Madigan. "He played through the pain. Playing through the pain, he was making it worse."

Despite the cracked rub, we're sure the sting of not winning gold was much worse for Levi. Also, it appears Stützle has one hell of a shot!
