Sad News”: Jacques Martin confirms worrying injury updates on the 24-year-old forward…

Ottawa Senators forward Josh Norris expected to miss ‘extended time’ with upper-body injury…

Josh Norris, a standout young player for the Ottawa Senators, is facing an extended absence due to an upper-body injury, as confirmed by head coach Jacques Martin. Norris sustained the injury during a game against the Nashville Predators when he collided awkwardly with the net while attempting to hit Cole Smith. Although he left the ice under his own power, Norris was unable to continue playing and was subsequently ruled out for the remainder of the game.

The severity of Norris’s injury is still being assessed, and it is unclear whether it is related to his previous shoulder surgeries. Last season, Norris missed 38 games due to shoulder issues, and he also sat out the first three games of the current season for the same reason. Additionally, he missed four games in January due to another upper-body injury. Despite these setbacks, Norris has been a key contributor to the Senators’ offense this season, tallying 16 goals and 14 assists in 50 games.

In addition to Norris, defenseman Travis Hamonic is also facing an injury setback. Hamonic, who is considered week-to-week, has been dealing with an undisclosed upper-body injury. This is not the first time Hamonic has been sidelined this season, as he previously missed five games in late January due to a similar injury. Despite these challenges, Hamonic has managed to contribute two goals and four assists in 47 games for the Senators.

The Senators, who currently have a record of 25-29-3, are set to face the Arizona Coyotes on Friday night. They currently occupy the bottom spot in the Atlantic Division and are five points ahead of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the worst record in the Eastern Conference.
