On a related note, does anyone have info on Gaustad's injury history? Is it me, or is it starting to feel like he gets injured an awful lot?
Depends, are we talking major injuires that cause him to miss a lot of games? If so the answer would be no.

In his last 6 pro seasons (3 in Roch/3 in Buff) he has played in 80,78,76,78,54 and 82 games respectively. The only major injury causing him to miss significant time was the lacerated tendon. As has been mentioned that was a bit of a freak injury.


But if you are talking about minor injuries that he can usually play through or only miss few games. Then the answer would be somewhat and get use to it. Things like bruised shoulders, jammed thumbs, etc are par for the course for someone that plays they way he does.
