I estimate he really missed only about 12 games in his entire junior career to injuries, assuming he didn't have a suspension or two I'm unaware of.

So in his seventh NHL season he's missed 46 games (an average of 6.7 games per season and about 58 games total in the last 11 years (just over five a season). He's also played 81 or more games three times in his NHL career.

How is he injury prone?
I didn't look at his games missed, it just seemed like through the years he's been hurt often, especially lately. Apparently I was wrong.

Regardless, I've never liked his game and believe there is a good reason Flyers fans were happy to see him go. Just my opinion.
