Max King will miss the remainder of the 2023 season with a shoulder injury.

The tall forward left the ground in the opening minute of St Kilda’s game against Melbourne on Saturday night after a collision at a stoppage.

The 23-year-old underwent scans on Sunday morning which confirmed he will require surgery and be facing another rehabilitation period.


“This is a really disappointing setback for Max,” Acting General Manager of Football David Misson said.

“We’ll have a better understanding of his return to play timeline after surgery.”

A further injury update regarding Seb Ross, and Zaine Cordy will be available on the club website on Tuesday afternoon.
