...But honestly, Granlund seems quite injury prone to me, and that makes me quite sad. Sure, he was facing tough competition in Finland and AHL ain't exactly soft either, but it worries me...
On his first season he had that groin injury and miss a some of the games.
On his second season he try to make a hit, but accidentally miss it and just hit to the board and get a concussion. Then there was that "Väänänen hit" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=709MRTZdkhw) and miss a game or two?
On his third season he miss a couple of games because of this hit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw8fU3HfCKE) and get a concussion. Then he get that "just a bad fever" what i think was a mycoplasma.
Now he had that sprained ankle and that was just a very bad luck.
So basically there is two hit to the head and some flu s***t and just a hand full of a bad luck. We can only hope, that this sprained ankle was a last injury on this season and never get a concussion anymore.
Ps. Now when i read that list, that dosent sound so good
Ok, my bad!
But thous are that kind of situations where Granlund get injured. He dosen't scare anything, which is good, but he should start to think that it isnt always so good idea to go after every puck.
When he get to play in NHL he would get hurt, if he dosen't start a look around and keep his head up..
Today was the eight-week checkup for defenseman Jonas Brodin, who underwent surgery for a broken collarbone. If all went well, the hope was he good intensify his upper-body strength training. He has been skating. But obviously, he would start in Houston some time down the road and isn't a candidate to start with the Wild if there's a season.
"He (Granlund) has a little soreness, so we don’t want to push that, especially with it being a three-in-three," Aeros coach John Torchetti said after the game. "So you’ve got to be careful with that."
Granlund was also seen after the game with a bit of a limp, and the "soreness" is in the same general area of his previous injury.
