He's one of my favourite players, and I'm sure he's a great guy too. It sucks to see someone in that kind of pain but he should take some relief in the fact Vancouver has some of the best surgeons in the country and if it comes down to a palmar fasciotomy or irrigation and debridement, he's in the best hands possible.
I know its quite a common thing to catch in MMA with everyone rolling around on the same mats, but wouldn't you almost expect someone like a hockey player, with all their routines and gear etc, would be more prone to having it recur?
