Morrison, the reigning world champion in the 1,500 metres and current World Cup leader in the 1,000 metres, has since returned to Calgary to meet with the national team's medical staff and specialists to further evaluate the injury and establish a rehab program.

The 27-year-old from Fort St. John, B.C., competed in all five fall World Cups this season, winning gold and silver medals in the 1,000 metres.
