That's 6 weeks before you can even begin therapy to prepare you to start to skate again. So lets say, 7-8 weeks from now, he starts skating, that's June, or at best Memorial Day weekend.

He'll be nowhere near game-shape. You can't do much cardio on one leg.

Torts said it: He's done.

It's terrible luck for a guy who really gives his heart and soul for this team every night. You think we're disappointed? Cally must be devastated.

Team has got to push on without him as best they can. Secure the playoff spot and keep trying to win games.

This is a real test.
Cast could be off in two weeks, get on the exercise bike to help get rid of the atrophy that occurs in the muscles. It all depends on the severity.
