Eh, I don't see any reason to not believe the doctors. There's nothing to gain by lying about his status.

I'm worried, too, but it doesn't sound too severe.

That doesn't look like a cast, more like just regular sports tape. I think his hand is just taped up to keep the swelling down. The same way you would tape down a sprained ankle. They said he was still hurting some, so it would make sense to tape his hand to try reliving some of the pain. I trust the Norwegian medical staff to be honest about this. If it was broken there would be nothing to gain by hiding it.

Want to think so to of course. Maybe Zucc even would play if it was the olympic final, who knows.... I am hoping that he himself donīt want to risk anything by playing with a half injured hand in a game that they with 99% certainty will lose.

It is just that I never like the situations when there is no information and no one knows anything except that he is sitting with a bandage/cast on his hand....

Well, the good news is that it's 10 days until his next game and 15 until the trade deadline. Barring a meaningful break, which seems highly unlikely, that should be more than enough time that the injury won't cause him to miss many (if any) games or play a role in the Rangers' upcoming decisions regarding Callahan.

Yes he broke that left wrist blocking a shot for The Rangers in the last regulation game in 11/12. And that wist bothered him his hole year in Russia.
Magnitogorsk did not want him to play the WC, but have a surgery as soon the season there was over.
Luckily he went back to New York, and has looked fine, but this is concerning.

A friend of mine on the norwegian team said he had suffered a fractured hand. Wasnt too complicated, but possible he's out until March.


Edit: Same news just got public: http://translate.google.no/translate...fl5N9Z&act=url

Same article also says he might not miss any time.

That sucks, but I guess we'll see what the news is when he returns

Yeah it says that it's believed he'll play when the Rangers resume. It doesn't say March.

Got hurt on Sunday the 16th, Rangers have only one February game left, then a back to back on the first and second of March, sit him out the first game if he is still in pain, and he would basically have healed for two weeks.

Wish we were playing Buffalo and not Chicago. Then again we just lost to Edmonton WITH him. Ugh, every point is important now.

The Philly game is afternoon game. The Hawks will have players coming back from Sochi. They should be in the same boat as the Rangers. Philly and Boston not so much. Chara should be flying back to the US tomorrow. Rask could be flying home tomorrow too. The first NHL charter from Sochi leaves on Thursday. Lundqvist will be playing Friday and Saturday/Sunday. Gotta figure the US wins today. Same thing with McDonagh and Callahan. Cam Talbot time. He will get maybe 2 starts out of those 3 games.

Google translate.

Norwegian doctor confirms it is a broken bone in the hand, but it is not complicated and he thinks Zucc is ready to play when NHL starts up next week.

But why believe him? He obviously lied to the press about the fractured hand the other day. I expect some weeks out for him.

This was the worst that could happen for Zucc, and might even cost him a good contract with the Rangers. And the worst part is that it now seems just so pointless when we look at how Norway came out in the olympics. Right now I wish that he wouldnt have cancelled his work with Unibet which would have kept him banned from the team.....

Oh FFS. I really hope two weeks is right.

This better not cause Slats to do something stupid at the deadline.

Why not? Why would he lie, he doesnt get anything from lying about it?

And the reason he "lied" about the fractured hand yesterday is because they hadnt checked for fractures as there was no sign of a fracture. Tho, when the swelling came (which was a sign) they immidiately checked and found it. It all stands in the article you linked and you seemingly havent even read yourself.

They are confirming that he has a small fracture that was not initially visible. Its not broken. So lets not paint everything black just yet

Perhaps that's why he's not in the NHL?

Seems Zucc is not waiting for the NHLPA flight tomorrow as all the beat writers say he is returning today for further evaluation.

Hope it's nothing serious. He's the most important piece of our offense. We need him healthy.

Theres a very distinct difference between a broken bone and a fractured one. A fracture wont immediately show up on an X-ray since what you're seeing is not a cleanly broken bone, but the healing process thats "highlighting" if you will the area of the fractured element.

That is why they said there was no broken bone, but a later X-ray revealed a small fracture. Since Zucc is only wearing a brace he's probably only sustained a stable fracture, which is a clean tear in the bone, no shattering. Ie. a simple fracture.

Personally I think that Zucc playing anywhere before mid March is unrealistic. Optimistic at best.

I wouldnt worry about his contract though, he's shown enough to warrant a extension, a couple weeks off wont change any of that
