It show what a warrior he is playing through that.
My general impression is that they come back to play in like 5-6 months, but that it'll be 10-12 months before they play like they did before the injury.
It might mean that we might need some stopgap help for the blueline. Basically to just anticipate that Beauch won't be as good for about 10 months and to plan the team accordingly.
