As the season progresses for the Bobcats, and the weekend series continue to physically impact them, they will inevitably get injured. Post reporters Jordan Horrobin and Spencer Holbrook will write a weekly blog — if injuries allow — to document Ohio’s bumps and bruises.
Ohio swept Liberty last weekend with a group of players that Ohio coach Sean Hogan called “a little dinged up.”
Hogan listed three players who played, but were “hurting” — defenseman Jake Faiella and forwards Matt Hartman and Austin Heakins — as well as defenseman Mike LaFrenier, who missed both games.
Hartman (broken finger on his left hand); Hogan expects Hartman’s finger to bother him until at least Christmas.
Heakins (back pain); He will play regularly.
LaFrenier (concussion); Hogan said LaFrenier is “okay now” and should be back to play against UM-Dearborn.
Faiella (back pain); He will play regularly.
