Came here for 3 weeks, went home for a bit, came back.
They were playing him in Sweden and our docs said that wasn't a good idea, so we brought him here and had Chow and the other guy work with him. He's good now and they don't expect it to be a problem going forward. Could have played in a game or something if we had more.
Didn't say where he'd be playing next year, but I suspect he'll be at main camp and probably spends time in Binghamton.
Also said Da Costa needs to get into better shape all around, he'll go home for a week, he'll play in the WJC in France, and he'll be in Ottawa all summer getting stronger.
A lot of amazing info in that quote. One, didn't know Dr. Chow was back at work. So amazing after horrible accident. He truly is one of the best back specialist in the country/world and fully trust that he would of been able to diagnose + heal back problem.
Really hope all the young kids stick together this year with a few of the younger players on the team and get initiated to training and conditioning it takes to stick in the pros. Karlsson and Petersson are really good friends so it is a no-brainer that the later will obviously seek advice from the former, but really hope guys like Wiercioch, Da Costa and co stick with guys like Neil and Foligno and train like they never have before.

So true, for the better or the worst of SEL hockey, the league is pretty hierarchal and teams like HV71 exemplify that to the outmost. Not a coincidence that SAK had so much success this year with a new bread of young up and coming players running and gunning around.
Also, really bias because I think Petersson has the most raw potential of any of our prospects at the moment and more so then Tedenby. Tedenby is safer and more sure bet prospect however will agree.
