Big bummer for Modano and hopefully he recovers quickly. Looks like Abdelkader is going to get a shot at being the 3rd line center for awhile.

People on other sites suggests this is his "career ending injury", why is that?

Because if it really did take 6 months for him to come back, that's pretty much the rest of the season, and we're talking about a guy who's 40 years old and was still trying to adjust to the speed of the Wings game.

I'm not saying that's the case, but it's not surprising people are speculating it could be the end of his career.


Not sounding good. Holland saying he'll be out a "significant" amount of time after Modano had surgery on the wrist last night.

Well Draper returns next week-ish, so bringing up iFlip would just throw us into a deeper rotation. For the time being, the Modano injury actually gives Helm, Abby, and Hudler chances to play full time.

Still, it sucks ridiculously bad to see Modo suffer an injury like this.

If Mike severed his flexor tendon, it's definitely going to take closer to 3 months or more, I'd guess, for him to return. The flexor tendons in the forearm could be compared to the severity of a torn MCL or ACL (except that they don't bear any weight). Every movement of the hand is directly related to the flexors, and with some nerve damage, that just increases the injury. He'll have to go through a lot of PT afterwards to break up scar tissue and regain full range of motion, let alone strength in that arm.

Good luck, Mike. Get better quickly!

I was wondering why I didn't see him out there in the 3rd at the game last night. Hopefully he'll be back sooner than later. Thankfully this team has great depth so I think they'll be fine without him for a while.

Doing some research here, same injury happend to Donald Audette some years ago, he never regained the same mobility in his arms after that,

2002/03/30 Missed 49 games (deep laceration on left wrist).
2001/12/01 Deep laceration on left wrist, sidelined indefinitely.

Ouch... :ranting:

I'm surprised there aren't more injuries involving skates, but also thankful at the same time. We can be thankful that the skate caught his wrist, instead of anywhere near his face/neck as has happened in the past.

You really realise how sharp those things are, and you think you are protected everywhere but there are still places that aren't...i wish all players would wear some kind of wrist/forearm protection but then they would complain it doesnt feel comfortable, same thing with the throat protector that is mandatory here in sweden until 18 or something if i remember correctly.

Having played hockey before, yes.

Speaking of throat protectors, I think they should be mandatory for all goaltenders to wear. A goalie's throat is far too exposed without one.

If I were forced to make a prediction here, its that Z and Dats will be separated and Flip will go down to center the third line

Just based on abdelkaders poor faceoff ability or something else?

I played before as well but unfortunately i quit right before the game was getting faster and physical and more interesting in juniors, and when i played no one were cut or exposed to that ever and i never thought about it either..
