Predators’ Kevin Fiala already walking, out 4-6 months

Watch as Kevin Fiala is stretchered off the ice after Robert Bortuzzo took him into the boards.

Is walking with a broken left femur an OK thing to do? Apparently so, at least if you’re Kevin Fiala.

The Nashville Predators forward, just two days removed from a scary crash into the boards in Game 1 of his team’s Round 2 series against the St. Louis Blues, was up and about at his doctor’s prompting, according to Sportsnet’s Cassie Campbell.

Fiala is expected to need four to six months to recover.

His team goes for a 2-0 series lead on Friday at 8 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on CBC.
