UND is expecting to get its captain back this season.
Sioux coach Dave Hakstol saidÂ on the coaches show this evening that defenseman Chay Genoway is expected to be out for three to five weeks. Genoway, whoÂ suffered a leg injuryÂ last Friday at Colorado College, was being evaluated for much of this week after returning to Grand Forks.
Hakstol said the team’s medical personnel were thorough in their evaluation, which continued into Wednesday.
“We’ve really taken time to make sure that we went through the right steps and the right processes,” he said. “I know people want to know right away what’s going on, but that’s not possible in a lot of cases.”
Hakstol said team trainer Mark Poolman and Dr. Greg Greek have been very involved in the process.
Genoway will almost certainly miss the Anchorage series next weekend, given the timeline. After that, UND has regular-season series at St. Cloud State, home against Bemidji State and at Michigan Tech.
The first round of the WCHA playoffs begins in five weeks. The NCAA tournament begins in seven weeks.
