You need 20 weeks of rehab to get those fibers realigned correctly for them to work at 90%+ of their capacity pre-injury.

They should hit him non-stop. Every single time you have a chance until his tendon gets really weak again.
IMO, it was a a mistake from the Sens organization to bring him back now.

So run him til he is worn down.
wouldnt he be reluctant to block shots with that kind of injury?
