Daccord (leg) was placed on injured reserve Monday, according to CapFriendly. This is simply a paper move and doesn't change anything about Daccord's timetable. The Senators fear that the rookie netminder could miss the remainder of the season.
Daccord (leg) may not return during the 2020-21 season, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Daccord was already expected to miss an extended period of time but his injury could be even worse than originally expected. The 24-year-old has posted a 3.28 GAA and an .897 save percentage through eight games this season and picked up his first NHL win on March 14. Filip Gustavsson will take over the No. 1 netminder role until Matt Murray (upper body) is back.
According to general manager Pierre Dorion, Daccord's (leg) injury "is not short term," TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. With Daccord facing an extended absence and Matt Murray (upper body) considered week-to-week, Filip Gustavsson will take over as the Senators' No. 1 netminder for the foreseeable future. It wouldn't be surprising to see Daccord, who's compiled a 1-3-1 record while posting a 3.28 GAA and .897 save percentage in eight appearances this season, placed on injured reserve in the coming days.
According to coach DJ Smith, Daccord (leg) "will be out for a little bit," Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Daccord is still being evaluated, so a more specific timetable for his return could be released in the coming days. Matt Murray (upper body) and Daccord are both dealing with injuries, so for now, Filip Gustavsson will take over as Ottawa's No. 1 netminder.
Daccord exited Tuesday's game against the Canucks in the third period with an apparent left leg injury, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Daccord wasn't able to put any weight on his left leg as he left the ice. The 24-year-old allowed two goals on 21 shots before departing. The Senators are already dealing with injuries to goalies Matt Murray (upper body) and Marcus Hogberg (lower body), so they could be in trouble if Daccord's injury is serious. Filip Gustavsson took over in net Wednesday.
