It's possible, but something does not add up with his skating at all. There is something wrong somewhere. Be it in how hard he is trying (and I wouldn't put it past him to not want to play through pain as we have seen him wilt under pressure all year) or there will be lasting effects with the injury.
He had a great U-18 last year, his skating was good, he was hitting and getting involved, numerous scoring chances on the PK. Maybe its all down hill for the 18 yr old, but I wouldn't be shocked if some team gets a very good player here that can step into the NHL sooner rather than later(if the injury is deemed not a true concern). Probably the Pens, he'll haunt us for years
