Waterloo Ducks’ Victor Charlet is set to miss three to four months of hockey following an injury to his quadricep.

The defender with the big drag-flick underwent surgery this week on the right femoral muscle having sustained the injury while making a regulation sprint during physical testing with the French national team.

It is a tough blow for the WatDucks just a month out from their EHL KO16 date with Surbiton, especially as he has already nailed 15 goals this season.

"Everything went well and I feel good,” the French captain was quoted as saying on the HockeyBelgium website. “Following the operation, I will normally wait for six weeks for it to heal.

“I can then begin the rehabilitation phase, the duration of which we do not know yet. But these delays also depend on how my body will react. It is therefore almost impossible to give a date of recovery.

“What is certain is my season with Waterloo Ducks is sadly over. But hey, my teammates do not need me to fulfill the goals set for this end of championship division honor! I am motivated and ready to come back even stronger."
