Good luck getting the team to admit that as they are still saying day-to-day and maybe week-to-week. With that said, Rupert is pretty tough and ive broken a bone in my foot before...depending on what is broke, it aint that bad
Old news. It's broken..no rumour.

If you are holding a broken stick or a second stick, you cannot make any attempt to be part of any play. You can't deliberately play the puck in any way, you can't deliberately make contact with an opposing player, and you can't deliberately be part of any play. Basically, until you get rid of the stick, you are an illegal player.
This is exactly the rule and why Harrington was penalized. Not because his stick was broken...but because he had hold of Stolarz' stick..and then shoveled the puck out of the crease with his other hand. Illegal stick.
