Rogle BK’s website updates Seider’s condition, and it’s murky but ‘Better than we feared’

Here’s Rogle BK’s website reporting an update on Moritz Seider’s condition, roughly translated from Swedish. The long story short is that Seider is headed back to Angelholm for further examination, but it sounds like he’s dealing with a sprained shoulder and not a tear of the musculature:

Update on Seider: “Better than we feared”

Defenseman Moritz Seider was injured in the final stages of Thursday night’s game away against Brynäs and had to leave the ice. He was examined at the hospital during the night and the report afterwards says that the prospect defenseman did better than feared.

“Moritz took a real blow and of course is in pain. Further examinations were performed at the hospital, including an X-ray, which shows that it was better than we first feared. He has soft tissue injuries and will go home [to Angelholm] for further examinations. Moritz will not play for a while but exactly how long we do not know today,” says Rögle’s physiotherapist Sven Thomsson.

Moritz Seider has been one of Rögle’s best players this season and in the game against Brynäs (which Rögle won 5-4 after penalty shootouts) he scored two goals and an assist before he was forced to step down.

Rögle goes on for the game in Skellefteå on Saturday but it will be without Moritz.
