"Following an injury suffered in last night's game vs. Philadelphia, Marc Staal was examined today in New York by Dr. Mark Fromer, ophthalmologist, and Dr. Mendel Markowitz, maxillofacial surgeon. The injury has improved significantly and both doctors are optimistic that Marc will make a full recovery. Staal will be sidelined indefinitely."
Both of the doctors list their affiliations with the Rangers in their bios
Markowitz checked Staal for any broken facial bones
Here is Fromer
#NYR Good news is Staal appears to have escaped any permanent damage, ie loss of vision. Will not require surgery, either
Ty McGinn of the Flyers had his orbital bone broken in a fight with Mike Brown. He had surgery and is out four weeks.
Staal would have needed surgery for a broken orbital bone.
Lundqvist said Staal has cuts above and below the eye. Stitches. Once the swelling goes away. Remove the stitches.
