Steve Sullivan

Can anyone update me on his injury status, if there is any news? At this point I'm beginning to wonder if he will ever play again.

If he does come back, he won't be the same after 2 back surgeries.

Supposedly he has said that he will return in January. My season tickets are located right next to the box where he sits during games. He has seemed to be in good spirits lately, from what I have seen.

GM David Poile feels Steve Sullivan's recent efforts to test his back injury have produced mixed results.
Sullivan has been sidelined since February of 2007 with a back injury. "There's been a little bit of progress in that he was on the ice and doing some exercises, and he's also doing some yoga, which he believes has been a benefit to him," Poile said. "On the negative side, his back doesn't totally hold too long in many of the on-ice sessions. The only way to correlate it is that maybe it's two steps forward and another step backward. Steve remains optimistic and his goal is to play this season. I think it's questionable because he's yet to this point able to break through what the doctors refer to (as) a threshold. The pain, the back discomfort, the back locking … until that goes away, it's going to be difficult for him to play professional hockey." Poile plans to check on Sullivan's progress again in mid-July.

Sullivan is going through something quite like Eric Daze did. That Blackhawk had the worst luck in trying to return from back surgery. At this point in his career, Sullivan still has the desire to play, but his recovery is much slower than it was in his younger years. Assuming Daze didn't play again, save a brief 12 game or so stint, it should be safe to say that Sullivan's playing future is in serious jeopardy. Back injuries are particularly tough to come back from...I still hope to see him in 08-09, but I think that's wishful thinking.

A PPG play right down the drain. Feel bad for the guy, his career is gone, even if it isn't he'll never regain how good he was before.

He was my favorite player before he went down from this injury. I really hope he comes back from it, but he won't be anywhere near the same player as he was before.

It's a shame.

Sullivan can't skate intensely for more than 45 minutes at a time. His hockey career is over.
