Rensselaer goalie Kasdorf out for weekend with upper-body injury

According to the Schenectady Daily Gazette, Rensselaer sophomore goalie Jason Kasdorf will not play this weekend at home against Sacred Heart with what RPI coach Seth Appert is calling an “upper-body injury” that Kasdorf suffered this week in a pre-practice warmup drill.

“There was no contact,” Appert said to the Gazette. “Just a freak situation. We’ll know more in time over the weekend. We have great doctors … and they’ll, with our trainers, evaluate him and take a look at everything. We will know more details early next week.”

Junior Scott Diebold will take Kasdorf’s spot between the pipes this weekend.

“I don’t think he needs to step up,” Appert said to the paper regarding Diebold. “He just needs to be Scottie and do the things that Scottie does. He was recruited for a reason. He was recruited to be a No. 1 goalie. At the beginning of last year, he looked like he was our No. 1 goalie, and he’s very capable of that.”
