    Senators feeling Arvedson's pain

    Forward on mend from surgery in Philly

    By BARRE CAMPBELL -- Ottawa Sun

      Senators winger Magnus Arvedson continues to recover in a Philadelphia hospital following surgery to repair a tear in his small intestine.

     Eight centimetres of the damaged intestine were removed during the operation, performed by Dr. Allan Barr Saturday evening.

     Arvedson was injured Thursday in Philadelphia during a game against the Flyers when he collided with the end of the boards by an open door at the Philadelphia bench. He was checked toward the boards by Marc Bureau of the Flyers.

     Arvedson stayed in Pennsylvania while the team returned to Ottawa. The injury was first diagnosed as an abdominal bruise, but further tests revealed intestinal damage, which required immediate surgery.

     Arvedson will be out of action for at least six weeks.

     "I saw him right after he got hit. I was on the ice, and I knew he was in a lot of pain," said Radek Bonk, one of Arvedson's linemates.

     "I thought (the injury) was going to be something big because he couldn't even stand up. He thought he could, and we tried to help him, but he went back down."

     The Senators have lost one of their top performers in Arvedson, who has scored 13 goals and 26 points this year.

     "Hopefully, everything is good for him," said Bonk. "It's a big loss for the team, but there's nothing we can do about it. We're going to have to overcome it. We've faced a situation like that before, and we're going to have to do it again."

     Arvedson will stay in Philadelphia for another week to recover from the surgery. He is under the care of Dr. Gary Dorshimer of the Flyers.

     "You look at the replay, and it could have been a lot worse," said Senators defenceman Chris Phillips. "Looking at that, you'd think every part of his body was aching because he got pretty banged around there."

     The injury is yet another in a series of physical setbacks that have hit the Senators hard this year. The team has lost 185 man-games to injury, and that number continues to rise.

     The Senators had four forwards -- Arvedson, Mike Fisher, Shaun Van Allen and Rob Zamuner --out of the lineup Saturday. Coach Jacques Martin said there were no plans to promote a player from Grand Rapids of the International Hockey League.

     Against Detroit on Saturday night, winger Colin Forbes played on the left wing with Bonk and Marian Hossa.
