Sure, he had surgery on his hand and back, but other than that, his other injuries were freak injuries that could happen at any time. Also, I believe his hand issue was from a puck hitting his hand? That could also be grouped into the freak injury issue
The year he got hurt, he had 12 pts in 13 games. He was having a tremendous start.
