ECHL: Adirondack Thunder Forward Travis Broughman To Miss Game 5 With Injury

Cody Conine/InsideTheRink

Adirondack Thunder Head Coach Pete MacArthur announced that forward Travis Broughman will miss Game 5 with an upper-body injury that he suffered early in the first period of Game 4 vs Florida Everblades. Broughman, who took an awkward hit along the wall early in the first, would stay on the Thunder bench for the remainder of the period but was seen without his gloves on and didn’t come out for the second period. The Virginia native has played in 12 games during the Kelly Cup Playoffs, putting up one goal and four assists for five points; he had 14 goals and 13 assists for 27 points in 66 games during the regular season.

“He won’t be in tomorrow, I’m not sure how bad it is but he won’t be back in”

If Thunder does have one thing, it’s depth. MacArthur will have plenty of options to choose from to replace Broughman, as Timur Imbragimov, Erik Middendorf, and Zach Walker were all healthy scratches on Friday Night. It will all depend on what MacArthur is looking to add to the lineup for a do-or-die Game 5, but if he’s looking for someone similar to Broughman, I would expect Walker to draw back into the Thunder lineup.

“Ya, that hurts obviously, we go down to ten forwards and that’s never easy”. He’s a big body, he’s been playing well, he takes pucks to the net, can play center and wing, that definitley stung especially in the first period, it was unfortunate”
