To see him skating so soon after the injury is amazing.

What an athlete.

Looking at that video, I'd say 2-3 weeks tops. He might be practicing with the team by the end of next week. Holy ****.

Dr. Chow isn't that bad a goalie. I know I wouldn't have saved any of those shots from the point.

This brings up an interesting point. I won't throw around any accusations but I really wish the NHL could put in a policy to allow injured players to use various banned substances to come back quicker from injury. We're probably seeing it in all sports, but few are talking about it. Its a conversation worth having imo, I'd bet the owners, doctors and players could all get behind it but we'd need more research and medical opinions to discover the viability. Conversation has to start first.

But regardless this is some pretty amazing news. Im simply shocked he looks so comfortable on skates already, this just doesnt seem possible. The thought of him returning this year has me salivating, what a boost to the teams morale this would be.

Take that up with the good Donald Fehr, it's more than likely his call on those issues since the NHL had to try all sorts of stuff to get him simply on board. He ran against steroid testing for baseball because it might make the players less money (he didn't say that but you know that's the bottom line): the man has no concern for any kind of integrity, it's all about money.
Stupid PA.

Yep...I have my suspicions about a few of the players on our own team to be honest (case in point Karlsson skating, and skating well, 2 months after having his achilles cut nearly in half). Does anyone know what the testing protocol is in the NHL (if there is one)? I don't think I ever hear about anyone getting in trouble for roids or anything like that in the NHL.

Wow, in the video from today he looks likes he's going twice as hard as the one from yesterday. I'm seriously getting excited.

I full trust the medical staff we have - but man...do not rush this.

We aren't winning the cup this year.

Not with that attitude, we aren't.

When you have goaltending as good as ours, anything can happen.

Edit: And on the drug topic, Karlsson is a very young 22-year-old, so the drugs are all his own endocrine system's doing. I wasn't joking when I said a Scandinavian dude his age is going to heal super fast.

If I recall correctly every team is tested once a season, 10 random teams twice a season and 10 random teams 3 times a season. Not to sure in a shortened season. I can't recall anyone getting in trouble either.

I think it would be naive not to be suspicious of a recovery this fast. I'm not calling him guilty or anything like that, but given the prognosis and traditional recovery times even from other athletes this seems pretty preternatural. I've always recovered from injury very fast myself being quite athletic and young, but I've never had an injury of that magnitude either.

And why do you assume that they don't without doing any research prior to making such a statement? FYI in the new CBA there is an: "applicable Therapeutic Use Exemption (“TUE”)" that players can use to take a substance that would otherwise be banned.

You're welcome.

This is not a case of steroids... such a horrible thing to do to ones body. I doubt Karlsson, nor Dr. Chow would allow it. There are some people that just heal quickly... Karlsson's build and muscle fiber probably adds to his recovery time. That is why he spends so much time on the ice when he is playing... his body is good at recovering and good at moving out toxins and various other acids that slow the healing process.

I honestly squealed like a little girl when I heard this yesterday. On top of the losing streak, it came at a pretty **** time for me, so it was great to hear!

My GF laughed her ass off at the sound I made lol

Remember that people with high metabolisms tend to heal much quicker. Karlsson is a professional athlete (and thus extremely active), and given the fact that he's skinny it's likely he has a naturally high metabolism anyway. Put it together and I expect you'd find Karlsson has a faster recovery rate than just about anyone. We couch slobs can't really compare our recovery rates to a guy like him.

Comparing Karlsson to other athletes who had similar injuries is valid though, and it seems Karlsson's recovery is going better than it did for other players.

Like I said, young skinny player with a metabolism that is probably amongst the fastest, if not the fastest, in the league = superultraduperfast healing time.
