Nikolaj Ehlers took a rough fall in the final seconds of the game between the Jets and the Flames and fans are worried he would be out long term.

Ehlers Gets Hurt Versus Calgary

In a diving effort to prevent the Flames from scoring an empty net goal, Nikolaj Ehlers went crashing into the boards awkwardly.

Nikolaj Ehlers slid to try to block an empty better and crashed into the boards. Looks like he's hurting on the bench on the broadcast. That's a horrible way to end a game.

Not a great angle but can suffer a separated shoulder (depends on grade of injury) and/or broken collarbone (8-12+ weeks) with this mechanism

Presume Jets will have a good idea tonight on the diagnosis for Ehlers as both injuries can be diagnosed after X-ray

These were some pretty hefty injuries Ehlers was facing but following getting checked out, it seems like Ehlers is no worse for wear.

Ehlers' Injury Status

It has just been reported that Ehlers is practicing with the Jets and is preparing for their next game.

Good news: Nikolaj Ehlers is out here for #NHLJets practice, none the worse for wear. He ended Wednesday's game in Calgary looking less then 100 per cent.

Hopefully, for the Jets, Ehlers is ready for their game against the Florida Panthers. If so, it is likely he just got a bit banged up and will not be missing any time for this collision.
