Dennis Seidenberg’s season is over. Seidenberg has been ruled out for 2013-14 because of a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee.
Seidenberg was injured in the third period of last night’s 5-0 win over Ottawa. Seidenberg collided with Cory Conacher. Seidenberg needed help returning to the dressing room.
Seidenberg was the team’s No. 2 defenseman. The left-shot Seidenberg had been playing on the second pairing. In the playoffs, Seidenberg could have moved up to partner with Zdeno Chara like he has since the 2010-11 postseason.
The rock-hard defenseman provided flexibility because he could play both sides. Seidenberg was also capable of logging big minutes in even-strength and shorthanded situations.
