Injury concerns are a legitimate topic. But so far Klefbom has not had any injuries that put his potential in serious question. The shoulder surgey is actually very common with the vast majority of players having no lasting issues once they have healed. The list of players who have had exactly the same surgery in cludes many of the games top players.
Yeah, I know. If he does the rehab well it should be close to 100? He can still skate (just better not fall down). It will likely slow down he's progress but that's about it.

Labrum tears are also weird, you could play months with it, shoulder feeling bad/little bad but not that bad that you wouldn't play with it; injuries happen all the time, bruises are part of the game. Then one hit that isn't necessarily even a big one and shoulder is totally ****ed.
