The difference is that for Vokoun it was the first time his "clot(s)" were diagnosed. For Ortmeyer, this is a reoccurance as he was diagnosed about two years ago with clots in his lung while he was with New York.

Therefore, there is a higher probability that Jed will have to remain on blood thinners for the rest of his life. Which would effectively remove any possibility of him playing contact sports again.
