It's definitely a delicate surgery that will require precision in rehabilitation to allow for full range of motion in the finger. one is unable to have a full grip, if these tendons are too tight, and he, reportedly, had 4 of them sliced. Roo should go to a certified hand therapist for rehab, not just average facility.
And certainly, a hockey player does not depend on his trigger finger like a sniper does, but improper healing may affect grip and sick handling.
I wish him speedy and complete recovery
