Yashin Out 10-12 Weeks

http://www.newyorkislanders.com/news...ury122403.html

Yashin's right arm was cut by the skate blade of Flyers forward Michael Handzus while setting up a play in front of the net that led to Arron Asham's game-tying goal.

Yashin suffered two partially-severed extensor tendons of the wrist and a severed sensory nerve.

Absolutely crushing blow to the Islanders.

Just glad that it wasn't as bad as it could have been and that he should be able to recover.

Ouch, I didn't see this game, was he bleeding all over the ice?

Damn, that sucks, even if he is an Icelander, you hate to see injuries like this.

It's odd...there was no blood. But Yashin was squeezing tight on it, then the trainer. But I don't think I've ever seen a man in more pain.

similar situation happened to Robert Schnabel earlier this year...Arm Laceration...I'm trying to think how long it was in between games for Schnabel...27 games from October 18th to December 22nd

Yikes, anyone else cringe when they read that?

^I agree, it could've been a lot worse, but Yashin's going to need serious rehab.

Pics, if anyone's interested. No blood anywhere, but now that I think of it, if he was cut by an edge, the slash wouldn't be too broad. Maybe the jersey hides it well:

But we'll have to see what Chow does when he's back in his usual number one scorer spot. He was pretty damn good when he was on his own, pre-Yashin.

I saw a bit of it on NHL.com on the highlights from last night, it looked as if Handzus kicked up at Yashin, anyone notice this?

He definitely raised his skate, but whether it was a kick or just him off-balance is hard to tell.

But after Corson's p---y kick a couple of years ago, nothing surprises me.

Is the injury similar to the one Donald Audette suffered a while back ? I hope not. The Audette injury has just ruined his career. He can't shoot anymore.

Yashin had two tendons partially severed.
Audette had 11 cut.

There are 12 in total.

IMO, Handzus was just offbalanced. Didn't look intential at all.

10-12 weeks is rough, this could mean the end of the islander's playoff hopes.

One of the worst injuries I've seen. Just the way he's skating towards the bench, obviously in serious pain, and then this "second wave" comes in and ratchets up the pain level to 11...

And all so absolutely *unneccesary*. I wish I could provide a specific reference, but about 7 or 8 years ago a Canuck got seriously cut, and there were stories in the newspaper about this local guy who had invented a new skate sharpening technique. The guy grabbed a skate, and was *sawing* at somebodies bare forearm with the blade, with nary a scratch. Some of the players tried the skates, and said they could feel absolutely no difference between his safe method and their normal method.

Seems like a no-brainer to me.

There was no blood... All Yashin did was setting up a play in front of the net, got "hit" (more of a touch that got him off balance), fell down and accidentally cut his hand on the blade of Michael Handzus. Can't remember who exactly, but someone raced over to Yashin with his arms up to celebrate the goal, Yashin just screamed, threw his gloves off and skated to the bench with this "I just saw a ghost look"...

Handzus isn't even looking at him. He's looking at the net, where the Isles just scored to tie the game at 3.

Yashin was on on his butt on the ice, it was an unfortunate accident, and a devastating blow to the Isles playoff chances.

Yeah, Hanzus was off balance as he tried to contain Yashin and his skate came up. Stupid accident.

Anyone here with medical knowledge could be helpful enough to comment on the "severed sensory nerve" part?

I myself, a few years ago, was deeply cut to a finger, partially damaging a sensory nerve, and lost almost complete sensitivity at the time. The doctor who stiched me up told me I should progressively recover sensations within a few months and that in most cases, it comes back near 100% (which it did for me). but he also said nothing was a sure thing with those kind of injuries as sometimes, those nerves don't heal well and the sensitivity, if it's the case, could come back only partially or even not at all.

Just wondering what was the technical info about that slashed sensory nerve (partial/total/does it affect the whole arm, etc.), as it's a no brainer it could probably affect to some extent Yashin's post-injury play. Even though you can move the injured body part perfectly fine, you don't feel a thing in it and you have no control over important coordination factors (pressure, among other things).

And as for the pain of slashing nerves, even though I never got injured as seriously as Yashin was the other night, I can tell nonetheless it's a real pain to endure in the few first minutes. It feels like you're getting the most powerful electric shock you ever had in your life. Horrible sensation and I got flashback from my own injury when I saw the highlight of that accident. Gave me goosebumps.

Hope he fully recovers and as someone else in the thread noted, I also hope the NHL can start looking at the sharpening technique of those blades, if it can help prevent those injuries in the future. Sad it always takes a few of those incidents before the NHL reacts (while it'd be better to anticipate and prevent). It took the death of a fan to install those nettings...

Yashin fell to the ground and his arm slipped beneath Handzus's skate which was slowly coming down as well, I dont' believe Handzus even knew what was going on since he was looking at the net.

severed tendon's ... ughhhhhh god I'm cringing just thinking about that
