Hope for Ogilvie

There's a glimmer of hope Calgary Roughnecks defender Andy Ogilvie isn't done for the season.

The 40-year-old injured his left knee during Calgary's 18-16 National Lacrosse League win over Colorado Friday night.

Riggers coach Chris Hall said Ogilvie may be available again this season but is still awaiting an MRI, scheduled for today.

"All the signs in the first assessment were that he was done and it was a very major injury," said Hall. "But we were talking yesterday with Andy and his doctors and there seems to be some hope that it's not as serious as we first thought."

Ogilvie has already had one surgery on his left knee and three on his right knee. He told the Sun yesterday he's trying to stay upbeat.

"It's a case of waiting to see the MRI to tell exactly what's wrong," said Ogilvie. "I've had three doctors look at it and they've all said a little something different.

"The specialist looked at it yesterday and basically the swelling was too big for him to give much of an opinion."

Ogilvie admitted the injury has taken its toll on him mentally and he's not sure if he'll attempt a comeback if surgery is required.

"I'm 40, that's long enough maybe," said Ogilvie. "I don't know if I have to make a comeback off this one ... if I have another surgery, that's probably enough for my knees."
