Yeah it's avascular nerosis. Basically there's no circulation to the the femur's head (avascular), and the bone starts to die. So there is a buildup of dead bone. That's just from memory. That way he made it sound was like it isn't going anywhere, and he just wants to play hockey now and worry about not being able to walk later.
