Fenwick hockey's inconsistent record this season has been in part due to the absence of Ben Kohen, who could be out for a few more weeks due to a shoulder injury. Read more from Angie Wiatrowski on High School Cube News.

At 13-12-2, the Fenwick hockey team has had what coach Tim Bossy called a “Jekyll and Hyde season.” The inconsistency has been aggravated by the absence of top scorer Ben Kohen. The Oak Park native has been out of action for a week with a shoulder injury and could miss another two or three weeks. 

Kohen popped the shoulder last week and thinks an injury to the same shoulder last season might have played a part. Last season, he hit the boards funny during a game and his arm got caught as he fell. This time, it was just a matter of lifting himself up that caused the injury. The recovery process will be similar.

“I have to wear a sling and will have to do exercises with a physical therapist before I can go back,” he said. “I’m lucky it happened over break where we didn’t have any games, we just had practices. I’ve already missed two games and I’m hoping I don’t miss too many more.” 

Kohen is tied for second in scoring in the Chicago Catholic League (12 goals, 14 assists in 13 games). He will be missed, but Bossy has confidence in the rest of the team.
