During Saturday's telecast of No. 17 Army's 9-6 victory over Navy, the CBS Sports Network tandem of Dave Ryan and Evan Washburn mentioned sophomore attackman Tucker Hull's inability to use his speed against Black Knights junior defenseman Brendan Buckley due to a hernia injury.
Midshipmen coach Rick Sowell, however, disputed that characterization Tuesday afternoon. He acknowledged that Hull is dealing with a sore muscle and that the injury is in the
"He's been dealing with an injury, but it hasn't been a hernia," Sowell said. "It's not that. It's more of a muscle issue than a hernia."
Since his three-goal, five-assist performance in Navy's 13-7 victory over Holy Cross March 17, Hull has totaled three goals and three assists in his last four starts, including zero points in the loss to Army.
But Sowell said Hull's limited production is not linked to the injury.
