I know if you look at football and hockey players with ACL surgeries the track record is very good.
ACL injuries are quite uncommon for NHL players...they are much more common with NFL players.

Which is what makes the Markov situation so freakish, to have torn it once was freaky enough, but twice?

Was obviously because the initial surgery wasn't successful or that he came back too soon.

Either way, he's taken ample time to heal this time and has gone through a littany of tests to make sure his knee is stable, while this doens't guarantee another re-injury, the odds are unlikely (although, this is the Habs).
