2016-17 Injuries

I can't tell you you're wrong, but maybe this will help.... I'm a big Drew Brees fan and whenever I hear the words "torn labrum" I always think of the shoulder injury (torn labrum + torn rotator cuff) he suffered to his throwing arm in his final game as a Charger back in 2005. Brees is well-known as a workout warrior (not unlike Hampus), but for what it's worth, after Brees had his surgery on January 5, 2006, he was already swinging a golf club (similar movement to hockey) by late-March, and he had already started throwing a football by mid-April. He was also pretty much a full participant in the Saints OTAs in late May 2006. This may be apples and oranges, but I figure if Drew Brees can throw a 30-yard deep out pattern four months after a catastrophic injury to his throwing shoulder, Hampus should be pretty close to full recovery four months after his surgery too.

I've always understood the recovery time frames they give for athletes after injuries as the amount of time it takes them to get back to play at a high level.  But maybe DUCKSDOC can chime in here and tell us what's really going on....

In my experience someone like Hampus should have a COMPLETE RECOVERY within 3 months and perhaps another couple of weeks to get ALL  of his strength back - and he will be as good, if not better when done. If it is just the labrum it should be a piece of cake. The problem is that MRI's of the shoulder are difficult to read - you have no real idea of what the collateral damage has been done until you  open it up and look around. If it is just a torn labrum I bet he will be playing/practicing by first week in Sept.

Anyone know when his surgery is scheduled and where ( hopefully Kerlan- Jobes ). IMHO

^^Thanks DUCKSDOC!

The surgeries were on 5/29. I haven't seen any reports yet of where or who did them.

Glad that they didn't diddle around and wait. Bet he will be back by the middle of September  - GOOD NEWS !!

Agree. I think he'll be back for training camp.

Swedish NHL superstar gets away six months
published June 3, 2017 at 07:03

NASHVILLE. Hampus Lindholm, 23, operated on his injured shoulder on Tuesday. And was told that the recovery time will be longer than expected.
- Yes, when you opened the shaft, it turned out that I had a little more extensive damage than the previous x-ray showed, says Hampus.
What would be four to five months of rehabilitation at risk now be five to six months before he is in the game working order.
- The operation took two hours and went well, but the shoulder was a little more damaged than we thought. It did not look so great out there. It is the result of that I played so long ago it jumped out of the way first time seven years ago, and then it happened again in the first round of the playoffs this spring, says Hampus.
Begin rehab training in California. The operation was conducted in the Anaheim Ducks club doctor, Dr. Orr Limpisvasti.
- He is a recognized specialist in shoulder surgery and everything went well. Everything is fixed now. I'm still numb understood and is in pain, but can handle me the usual painkillers.
What is the schedule for rehabilitation?
- I will be able to begin rehabilitation training on Monday and will remain here in California for three or four weeks before I go back to Sweden and continued training there.
Anaheim Swedish reverse star had hoped for four or five months of recovery and some missed games in the early part of the season 2017-18. Now it looks like Lindholm will miss at least the first month of the league.
- It feels good to have got it done now and be able to come back and play out fully, says Hampus.


 

Can't say how valid the source is, I was waiting to see if any updates from the team or media close to the team would come out to corroborate this, but so far I don't see anything. Pretty odd. If legit, good info in the article, and it's not too surprising given what DUCKSDOC mentioned above regarding how it can be tricky to know the exact extent of the damage until he is opened up (gross). This is going to make for another rough start to the season without Hampus, I really have to wonder why there isn't another source confirming a longer recovery timetable though.

I haven't seen any updates. It is odd that on his instagram he mentions rehab in California but doesn't mention it's just a few weeks before he heads back to Sweden.

Two updates:

1) Saw Lindholm on Sunday and he looks great.  He didn't stress his shoulder, but he was shaking hands and putting arms around people for pictures.  I think he'll be great by the season opener, unless there's a setback.  I am always surprised as how thin his arms are, outside the hockey garb.

2) News on Kesler is surprising and bittersweet.  He's had surgery on both hips, which was planned since approximately January (so he's been playing with the injuries at least since then!), but they found bone chips in both sockets (which was a surprise, didn't show up on scans I guess).  The chips may not be good news on longevity, but the much better news is that he should be healed by season opener, and even injured he was able to shut down both the Flames and Edmonton.  I have a lot of respect for Kesler, but now I sort of think he's a hockey god.  Sheesh.  I dearly hope there's no chance of more serious issues with his hips going forward (thinking about Emery).

GREAT NEWS on Kes - if the chips didn't show up on X-rays or scans they must have been very small and don't have a bad outlook. Could possibly needs his hips cleaned out in another 3 - 5 years. Apparently no torn labrum or significant damage to the joints. Bet he will be back BETTER THAN EVER. IMHO

He did have hip surgery prior to the 2011-2012 season. Mechanics issue?

No team was beat up more than the Ducks during this years playoffs.  It just feel like it was our time and injuries ruined it.  Nashville loses one guy and all we heard about was how resilient they were.  Pffftttt.

I considered debating this point, but instead I'll just say "Get Well Kes!" 

Even if he's not ready for the opener, who cares. Just be right by January (which should be no problem at all for a 12-week timetable).

Since there's a dozen ED threads and only one GDT, I can't say you pulled a Z. Admirable attempt though!

Ouch. We are going to be hurting to start the season with 2 top d men out and 1 top line center in Kes. Oh boy

On the bright side, those guys are going to be well rested for another deep run :ph34r:

Silver lining: As long as we don't get too far behind in the standings, it won't be the worst thing to get some of our top prospects NHL time. Then, as DF_08 said, Kesler and Co. might be poised and rested for a deep run. We'll see!
