For those looking for an update on injured Colorado Eagles forward Martin Kaut, well, there really is no update.
Colorado Hockey Now reached out to a source today in hopes for some intel on the injured Avs prospect.
“Here’s what I can give you…He is in the process of getting back to game-ready condition,” said the source.
In short, no one really knows what exactly is ailing Martin Kaut at the moment. I wasn’t even able to pry if it was upper- or lower-body. What I do know is, 1) it isn’t believed to be COVID-related, and 2) he is not skating, and is rehabbing whatever it is off the ice for the time being.
Kaut made his NHL season debut in Anaheim on Jan. 22. He took a tripping penalty midway through the first period and played just eight shifts. He was sent back down to the Colorado Eagles shortly after this game against the Ducks.
Kaut participated in the Eagles training camp, which began on Jan. 25 and was seen during — and participated in — the team’s scrimmage on Feb. 5. Kaut has not been seen since. Did the injury occur during the scrimmage? Perhaps. Or maybe it was during a subsequent practice. We don’t know. Very little detail has been released by the Eagles or Eagles PR.
He did not make the Eagles first road swing through San Diego and Ontario, Calif. from Feb. 13-20. Kaut has yet to appear in a game for the Colorado Eagles this season, and it doesn’t sound like he’s particularly close to making his Eagles debut anytime soon. AHL Colorado is hosting the Tucson Roadrunners Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and it seems unlikely Kaut will play in any of those games this week.
Colorado Hockey Now will keep you posted on any updates as they are uncovered.
