That's what I was afraid of. Really crappy luck for this kid. Should be on the Flyers now.
What a tough call to balance out... get him the surgery now to begin his recovery (will it take a full year like it did for them?) or get him back and skating in game play again to progress his development and hope he can keep up in the fall? Ugh.
Seeing what essentially seemed like the same slow recovery in Giroux, Ghost and probably now Patrick... I almost want them to pull him and get him the surgery now if they already know he'll need it.
