SOCHI, Russia -- The United States will be without Paul Martin, one of its top shutdown defensemen, for Friday's semifinal game against Canada, USA Hockey announced.
Martin has a hand injury, suffered during the quarterfinal game against the Czech Republic, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports, citing sources. Martin, who is currently wearing a splint and may eventually need a cast, will be re-evaluated in Pittsburgh, according to the paper.
A win over Canada would send the U.S. into the gold-medal game on Sunday against Sweden, a 2-1 semifinal winner over Finland. The losers of the two semifinal games will play for the bronze Saturday night.
