Boston College's Patrick Wey Out 6 To 8 Weeks

via <a href=""></a>

Bad news on the injury front, where junior defenseman Patrick Wey severed a tendon in his foot after getting hit by a skate blade in a freak accident on Saturday night at Northeastern, according to coach York.

"We had one bad injury: We lost our defenseman Pat Wey, who's been a really good player for us. The skate blade went right through the tongue of his skate. ... Those skate blades are so sharp, it just kind of cuts through."

Wey, who has played in all 6 games this season, will reportedly be out 6-to-8 weeks.

He's been a solid contributor on the Eagles blueline. Through 70 career games, Wey has 1 goal and 13 career assists. Wey is a fourth-round draft pick of the Washington Capitals in 2009 (115th overall), participating in the Caps development camp this summer. 

"He's been a really good player for us,'' BC coach Jerry York told the Boston Globe. "He'll probably be gone six, seven or eight weeks. Hopefully he'll get the tendon sewn back [during surgery last night]. That is a tough loss for us.''

Wey has been paired with Brian Dumoulin on defense. It will be interesting to see what York does here, as the Eagles only have six defensemen on the 2011-12 roster.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Wey.
