Marion Gaborik Latest World Cup of Hockey Casualty

First Tyler Seguin (hairline fracture in heel), then Matt Murray (broken hand). Now Marion Gaborik is the latest NHL player to find himself out of the tournament and in danger of missing a chunk of the 2016-2017 NHL season.

Team Europe--and the Los Angeles Kings--got some bad news on Monday when Gaborik was lost for what could amount to 8-weeks after taking a shot to the foot in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over Sweden.

According to reports, the injury is to the right foot.

Gaborik was a key player for Team Europe, scoring two goals in four games to help the squad reach the final against all odds. Gaborik scored the game-winning goal in Team Europe's opening-night win over Team U.S.A. and registered 13 shots and a plus-2 in four games.
