Air Force All American and Hobey Baker Finalist Eric Ehn has a fractured Fibula and may have ligament damage.

Ehn suffered the injury on Saturday night in the third period of the Falcons loss to the Colorado College Tigers. Ehn got tangled up with Tigers forward Bill Sweatt while going for the puck and crashed feet first into the endboards.

Ehn had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. X-Rays revealed the fracture, but Academy officials say more tests will be needed to determine the extent of the ligament damage. They say Ehn's playing status is still up in the air. He will be out at least this week against Army, but his long term prognosis won't be known until the further test results come in.
