What has already been a tough season for the UVM men's hockey team just got a little tougher. The Cats will be without forward Tobias Nilsson Roos for the remainder of the season as the senior will undergo career ending hip surgery.
This will be Nilsson-Roos' third hip surgery since becoming a Catamount. He'll have a bone spur removed from his hip the day after Valentine's day. There has been no love affair between the Swedish born Nilsson-Roos and his ailing hips. His games played total went down each of his four years and was limited to 13 games this season, scoring just one goal. He played in 64 games his first two years on campus netting 9 goals and 15 assists, but at the same time playing in a lot of pain.
Here is UVM's official injury statement on senior forward and assistant captain Tobias Nilsson-Roos:
"Tobias Nilsson-Roos has been bothered by a chronic hip condition for most of this hockey season. He is scheduled for surgery to correct the problem, and will therefore miss the remainder of the season."
