Union defenseman Vasaturo's season may be over
Union sophomore defenseman Charlie Vasaturo is hoping that his game last Friday against St. Lawrence wasn’t his final one of the season.
But it’s not looking good.
Vasaturo suffered a knee injury early in the first period of the Dutchmen’s 5-1 victory over the Saints. Union coach Rick Bennett said that Vasaturo is “day-to-day until September.” That would mean he is done for this season.
Vasaturo isn’t ready to call it a season just yet.
“We’re not quite sure,” Vasaturo said. “We’re still figuring it out. We’re staying optimistic. Nothing is ruled out yet. I want get back as soon as possible.”
Vasaturo was hurt on a seemingly innocent play on a dump in.
“I got hit, and it must have been awkward,” Vasaturo said. “It twisted up my leg there. I went back to the bench and shook it off.”
Vasaturo came back out to help kill off Kyle Bodie’s hooking penalty at 5:54 of the first. But it would be a very short shift for Vasaturo.
“I just wasn’t feeling right,” Vasaturo said. “That ended up being the end of it for that game.”
