Its more likely an MCL injury than an ACL. As Zetterberg40 said, the ACL is a major part of your knee's stability and skating or walking on it would be near impossible if his ACL was torn.
From his symptoms is sounds like a Grade 3 MCL tear, the worst kind unfortunately, that prevents the knee from bending and healing time is normally 6 weeks + and includes immobilization, so rehab work to regain strength afterwards.
I hope its less serious cause if it is an MCL tear he's likely done for the season.
