I hope he recovers from that injury and doesn't get hindered in anyway. Definitely can see a Shea Weber in him
Hamonic has a grade 3 AC seperation, will be out for 8 weeks.
Let us hope that there are no reocurrances or chronic problems.
Grade 3 is complete seperation of the clavicle from the joint-ligament.
Grade 1-3 are normally treated with rest, immobility of the joint and it heals naturally. Grade 4-6 normally requires surgery.
Surgery entails pins or other screws to bind the parts and is the more serious from a full recovery standpoint.
Still, that hit was dirty and unneccessary. Hamonic is a true top prospect, while not a monster liek Weber, very good NHL size, especially for NYI.
