Thanks for the update, hopefully Merrill is alright.

Hopefully he just got his bell rung and it's not a concussion.

That's what you get for scheduling these lowly Canadian schools that have nothing better to do than take runs at A-list NCAA players. Happens to UNH too.

Damn, that sucks. Thanks for telling us.

Sounds like a really reckless hit for an exhibition game.

Whoa, when you're talking about a neck injury, nothing is minor. I'm glad it's not really serious though. Two months off is a long injury, but at least it didn't wipe out his season.

Like Saugus said, the words "neck", "minor", and "fracture" don't seem to go together. Bummed that I won't be able to see Merrill play next month, but hopefully he has a smooth recovery.

Yikes. Merrill with a broken neck and Gelinas with a broken jaw. Hopefully this gets all the bad mojo out of our system for a while. No more breakages, please.

That Canadian scrub who broke Merrill's neck is luck he didn't paralyze or kill him. It's a matter of millimeters when it comes to breaking neck bones. Speedy recoveries to Merrill and Gelinas.

Woah woah woah.

Fractured vertebrae, COMPLETELY different than a broken neck.

What does a broken neck actually involve? There isn't much there outside of spinal area. Is this like having a minor pregnancy?

Broken neck, if I have this correctly, is a complete break of the neck, or the vertebrae in the neck. A vertebrae fracture is a break in one of the vertebrae in the neck, is almost like an "opening" within the bone. The "break" occured in the middle of the bone.

Still, neck injuries are never something to take lightly. It could have been a lot worse than it was.

At this point, just hope Merrill has a smooth recovery. Just get well and focus on healing. Gelinas too.

My biggest fear for JM is not the neck injury. It is the tangential issues around inactivity, less structure and pain medication.

I gotta check ESPN3. If I'm right they broadcast the occasional college game right?

EDIT: I guess not, anyone know where to find college games?

ESPNU shows the occasional NCAA hockey game. Not sure if they're showing any soon.

Anyone with DirecTV - just go to channel 600 and scroll down to like channel 660 on Friday or Saturday night. You can find a few college hockey games.
