After finally seeing the video (missed the 3rd period) and having a sports medicine background, that does not look good.

Hate to speculate, but that what happened is probably the best way to dislocate a shoulder. The way Callahan reacted as well definitely leads me to believe he dislocated it, since when most people dislocate a shoulder, they react like he did and hold it just like that. I believe it was his left shoulder, and if that's the case, it's worse, as it would be his top hand on his stick (Cally is a righty I believe).

The shoulder is a very unstable joint, so any kind of dislocation can be very damaging, depending on the severity of course. On the mild side, you are looking at a week or two. Worst case scenario, could be about 3 months. Again, worse case scenario.

Hopefully it's not as bad as it looks.
