Feb. 22, 2014: Marc-Andre Bourdon injured again (Feb. 28 article posted)

He will be placed on LTIR at some point. That is the determination from today's session.

----------------

An article from yesterday: http://blogs.courierpostonline.com/f...t-day-of-camp/

Quote:
PHILADELPHIA — For five months, Marc-Andre Bourdon had been skating this summer. Whether it was in Voorhees or Colorado or Switzerland, the defenseman who turns 24 next week has been itching to make a return to the ice after a pair of concussions plagued him in a calendar year.

His most-recent game was last Nov. 30 with the AHL Adriondack Phantoms. He was hoping to be cleared for training camp, but apparently that is not the case.

“We’re just gonna hold him off at least for today anyway,” Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow.”

Bourdon told the Courier-Post about a month ago that he was still having symptoms, mostly eye sensitivity stemming from discomfort in his neck. He also wears a tinted visor to reduce light sensitivity.
January 19th update:

No kidding. Bourdon says he's cleared for contact and can resume his career.

Bourdon says he has been cleared to play; he is on one-way deal, but can go to Phantoms for conditioning stint.

Was this expected? I thought I read that he was getting better.

There was a mention of continuing issues earlier this month.

He did everything he could to make the team. The fact that he was willing to quietly play through injury without telling anyone could cost him his career.

This is a tragedy on the level of shakespeare should this play out the way I think it's going to.

I met his family once. Great people, and I really do wish the best for Bourdon.

In Shakeapeare, he would kill himself, his family would die, and the Flyers would all die.

I was implying the weight of dramatic irony, but if you like killing people off, sure.

If injuries were deaths, our defense is Titus Andronicus.

The Flyers will take care of him. Give him a job as a scout or something.

I was wondering how in the hell they would approve for him to play since he's lately been so honest about his condition, saying he has vision issues and headaches...you dont put a guy that clearly has issues back on the ice until they are gone

Nah there were definitely hints about it. I remember bringing it up months ago in the Lauridsen thread when every one there was saying once MA comes back Lauridsen would return back to a bottom paired AHL defenseman or whatever exaggeration they were using.

But he was going hardcore in training trying to get medical clearance. He said he trained for like 6 months straight doing a double schedule. I remember an article that said he would see McCrossin once a week in hopes to get cleared....and hadn't been getting cleared. It seems he keeps thinking that because he can block out some of it that he's A-OK, what the article I'm trying to remember sort of insinuated, while the team is sorta telling him something along the lines of "Just because you can skate and such doesn't mean that you're actually recovered" and holding him back so he doesn't get hurt more.

It's kind of hard to watch a guy so desperate to realize his dream go through this honestly.

Definitely a shame. I do hope that the Flyers and the NHL use him as a spokesperson for why you don't try to mask head injuries and play through.

I feel bad for the kid. He has worked hard and has had nothing but **** luck.
Hopefully he can have a full recovery even if never does play again.

Poor guy. I echo what Chris said. It's a damn shame someone so young should have to suffer so much for chasing his lifelong dream.

Can't help but feel sorry for this guy. I really hope that he's able to get back onto the ice at some point. He has done nothing but battle for the good of the flyers. He really had a shot at making the team. It's heart-breaking to see things like this happen.

This is a more detailed article regarding Bourdon....

http://www.csnphilly.com/hockey-phil...r-ready-return

Quote:
Defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon went on the ice Sunday at Wells Fargo Center with teammates for the first time in training camp.

It was just skating drills without contact, but a small step forward.

That said, Bourdon acknowledged he is nowhere near ready to return because of continued post-concussion syndrome and will accept being placed on LTIR this fall, if necessary.

Bourdon has had multiple concussions the last two seasons here and in the AHL. His progress is monitored daily by trainer Jim McCrossin.

“I have still had symptoms and I was never [medically] cleared,” Bourdon said. “Me and Jimmy talked and just decided to keep me off the ice.

“Every time I skated with the guys [in August] and there was contact and stuff, it was just bad luck and I had symptoms. I can’t have the contact if I am still having symptoms.”

He said he felt “okay” on the ice today but wouldn’t know for hours whether there was any delayed reaction. Bourdon did all his drills with Kimmo Timonen.

Damn shame, a guy my girlfriend goes to school with has a nervous system disease. (He's a pens fan) met Bourdon in Georgia going to the same clinic. Bourdon spent hours with the kid along with a few pens who were down there. I'll spare the details but he quickly became one of my favorite sportsmen after having this story relayed to me.

Sept. 30: Marc-Andre Bourdon has been placed on the injured list as a non-roster injury. His salary doesn't count against the cap.

Explained here:

Quote:
Defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon does not count against the cap. He was designated as “Injured Non-Roster,” explained in collective bargaining agreement Article 16.11 (d) as such:

Once a Player is placed on the Injured Reserve List, the Club may replace said Player on its NHL Active Roster with another Player, and during such period of his designation as an Injured Reserve Player he will not count against the Club’s Active Roster limit, provided, however, that the Injured Reserve Player’s Player Salary and Bonuses and his replacement’s Player Salary and Bonuses are each included in calculating a Club’s Actual Club Salary and Averaged Club Salary, and the Players’ Share, for purposes of Article 50.

I hope he retires. It's really not worth messing up the rest of his life. If he was a star player making tons of money it might be worth it but not at his talent level.

Amazing he's managed to get himself back. Still a long way to go yet but admire his spirit and fight.
