This doesnt sound good. How many is that now in the last couple years?

For all Marks success finding quality players (skaters) in the early to mid picks, it seems picking a goalie early has been an issue. For different reasons. Zador didnt pan out, the Jenkins tragedy, and now a wonky knee or two from Herbst.
Mark has however had some success with late picks or FA goalies. Mason, Houser and now hopefully Stolarz

Its gonna take some real hard work, a top notch physio program/therapist and some good fortune for Herbst to have a chance to reach his pre draft potential. Best of luck moving forward, youre in tough.
