That was one of the main reasons Dan Blackburn opted to not try a comeback.
Anyone else remember Blackburn's brief comeback attempt? The guy had major nerve damage in his arm, and couldn't rotate his wrist, so he tried to play with two blockers instead of the traditional blocker+stick / trapper.

Full frigging credit to Blckburn, the guy wanted back in so bad he tried this:



Best of luck to Pascale, no hard feelings whatsoever. The guy was just a walking triage waiting to happen, there's not much he could have done about it. It's a shame his health didn't match his skill: he was an NHL starting caliber goalie in every other metric, his bones just kept refusing to cooperate.
