College Hockey:
Report: Rensselaer goalie Kasdorf done for season, will have surgery

The Schenectady Daily Gazette reported Wednesday that Rensselaer sophomore goalie Jason Kasdorf will have shoulder surgery, likely ending his season.

Kasdorf dislocated his right shoulder during practice two weeks ago.

“I would say it’s a strong likelihood that he’s going to have surgery and be out for the year,” RPI coach Seth Appert said to the paper. “That’s what it’s looking like. We’ve taken our time on it and let him rehab a little bit and see how it feels.

“The dislocation is one concern, considering it’s come out twice with no contact in minimal situations, but the broken bone and the bone fragments in the shoulder are probably as or more problematic to a rehab situation.”

Kasdorf, who will get a medical redshirt, played in RPI’s first two games this season, going 1-1 with a 3.49 GAA, a .786 save percentage with one shutout.
