New York Rangers superstar defenseman Adam Fox left Thursday night’s contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets after he suffered an upper-body injury. Rangers head coach Gerard Gallant confirmed to the media after the game Fox is out with a minor injury and may miss a game or two.
The Norris trophy winner left the game early in the third period after he was pinned against the boards by Blue Jackets defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov.

Fox has been absolutely lights out again this season as he leads all defensemen with 47 points in 44 games. While a ton of people are trying to give Cale Makar the Norris already, Fox is standing his ground as the reigning champ and isn’t going to hand over the title very easily. Expect these two to battle it out the rest of the season for the top prize and let’s hope Fox doesn’t miss much time.
