Also...I'd be concerned the rigours of his position may take a toll on the injury. I imagine the team staff would not be playing him if there were long term consequences, but it does seem a quick recovery.
I think the report was taken out of proportion. It was not a significant injury, and although Martin sat out a couple games, the Steelheads had no other option in terms of third goaltender. I think it was ultimately a good move, there will be competition between Teichmann and Windsor for the backup position.
An interesting note was the Mapleleafs chief scout Dave Morrison mentioning Martin and Burnside on their watch list. Percy looks solid so far, I think this will be his last season in the OHL. I understand this is a score by committee team but they are going to have to find some secondary scoring. 60.8% of goals coming from their first line of 25-23-15.
