Brianna Decker will need surgery upon returning home from Beijing, the women’s hockey forward told reporters at the Olympics on Thursday morning.

Decker was stretchered off the ice with a lower-body injury during a 5-2 win for the Americans over Finland last week. She said she suffered a broken fibula and “many torn ligaments,” speaking from a scooter.

The Dousman, Wiss. native led the U.S. in assists during their gold medal run in 2018. She now plays for the Calgary section of the PHWPA.

Her injury occurred in a collision with Finland’s Ronja Savolainen that wasn’t called a penalty.

“They saw it as just people getting tangled up,” US coach Joel Johnson said following the Finland game. “I’m biased and so I saw it a little differently. But I don’t think it was a missed call by any means.”

The US is scheduled to play the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals at 11:10 Eastern on Thursday.
