Fractures of the orbital floor are quite common in sports, especially in hockey. In fact, this looks very similar to the
injury Michael Ryder sustained a few weeks ago
. I'm not worried long term, unless there is permanent double vision as a side effect that cannot be treated. RDS analyst Joel Bouchard had the same injury during his career, and that's why you can notice that his right eye is a bit lower in his face.
And by the way, there is zero chance of the eyeball "popping out" of the socket, as someone suggested. So overall I'm not worried, this is a common hockey injury with a good prognosis.
