Maybe there's a form issue that needs to be corrected...? Hopefully the Canucks trainers can address the issue that caused it, shoulder tendonitis can be brutal (I speak from experience). Lingering shoulder pain will put a stop to any strength training program and will take all of the power off your shot.
It's certainly possible and I think some time with the strength and conditioning coaches can give some guidance if that is the case.

To be honest, Rodin is not one of the guys I'm expecting anything for for at least another 2 years. He shouldn't be in any rush to make the team.
