Yes, but we are all looking at this like a fracture that occurs from stress on the bone until it cracks, which is the kind of thing that happens when a skate gets stuck in a rut while taking a body check.
This was the result of a shot, which could mean the bone was actually shattered, which means he may have fragments and other complications, and the break itself may not be all that clean.
I'm sure it's no problem long term and he'll be fine over the summer, but I think we have to face the fact that he wont be skating in the playoffs.
