During the 2009 camp:

Earlier in the week Hodgson said that a return to junior would be a step backward.

"I don't think I'd develop much at all [in junior]. This is where I need to be for more development. This is where I think I fit," Hodgson said.
After he was cut:

The Canucks sent him back to Brampton. He was crushed.

A second opinion from The Cleveland Clinic confirmed the herniated disk. But doctors there recommended he stay off skates indefinitely.

Then it got worse. Canucks coach Alain Vigneault inferred Hodgson was using the injury as an excuse for a poor camp, trying to ''roll the (blame) in a different direction.''
