He has unfortunately played his last game of hockey, in all likelihood. Situations like these are why I feel the 35+ rule needs to be tweaked. Lappy didn't sign with the Flyers having had a history of taking a puck to the face.

I've said before, this isn't like Team X signing 35+ year old Player Y, who has a long history of knee problems only to have Player Y go down with a knee injury. There's no way this injury could have been foreseen, and there's no way the on-going symptoms are as a result of his age. An 18 year old is just as likely to have PCS from taking a puck to the eye than a 36 year old.
