Archers LC midfielder Tom Schreiber will miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury sustained in the Archers loss against Redwoods LC on Friday night.
In Friday’s game, Schreiber dislocated his shoulder at the end of the first quarter after taking a hard check from Garrett Epple. Schreiber proceeded to take a 40-yard shot as time expired and then ran to the sideline. Schreiber didn’t return to the game after being worked on by the PLL medical team.
Schreiber ended the regular season as the second leading scorer in the league, tallying 37 points (17G/18A). He was also the highest scoring midfielder during the regular season, as well. Schreiber had two assists before leaving the game on Friday.
Back in February of 2018, Schreiber suffered a knee injury while playing with the Toronto Rock in the NLL. That injury sidelined him for a big portion of the season, but he did return for the Rock at the end of the year. He also suited up for Team USA and the Ohio Machine that summer before having surgery on his knee last September.
Schreiber will miss Archers final gam of the season against Atlas LC to determine who gets the first overall draft pick in 2020. While a timetable for Schreiber’s injury is not known at this time he shouldn’t miss any time with Toronto in the NLL because of it.
