there was two-three entries per injury explaining what was going on so i filtered them out this is the list of his injuries that made him miss games over the year according to wherever you got this data from.
My feeling, he does have some bad injury problems in the past but the past season was relatively healthy by his standards. Maybe he is turning a corner a la Gaborik, who had some bad injury problems early in his career.
I know what its like to have an injury and try and fight through it, it never really heals. That has been Hemsky's problem in the past, when he gets injured he is playing again within 5-10 games and then that same injury reappears throughout the season. It was just these past few years that the Oilers and him have been focusing on fixing the problems in the form of season ending surgery when they appear. This is probably why he was able to appear in the majority of this season, because he is finally healthy again.
