2017-2018 Injuries

Recommended Posts

The good news is it sounds like Lindholm, Kase and Miller are all practice regulars the last few days. All should be in the lineup during the upcoming road trip. 

Although it looks like Kase is the only one who has a shot to play tonight.  I'd love to end the homestand with a win and get some key guys back for the trip.

Stephens reported Getzlaf skated on his own this morning so that’s something. What’s troubling is Eaves went to see a specialist. That basically means his injury is back to square one. I liked the signing because Eaves fit in really well and the $/year was good for a UFA who just scored 30 goals, however, if Eaves can’t manage to stay healthy... He’s always had injury issues, I was just hoping he’d be good for at least 50 games and the playoffs. Not a good start to the contract at least, he couldn’t even stay healthy over the summer :huh:

Was Eaves a non-hockey related injury? I mean, I guess they are all "hockey related" in some way...but it wasn't like he was eating pancakes or something, right?

I wouldn't be surprised if he got hurt while having breakfast at Dustin Penner's house. I never liked that Murray gave him more than a two-year deal...no matter how rad his beard is.

Pancake injuries are definitely hockey related if you are watching hockey at the time.

Man I really wonder how bad some of these injuries are...

Given that Getz held off on hernia surgery last season...it says something that he's been out as long as he is.

Eaves needs to see a specialist, Getz played 2 games and needs around a week to come back. Miller still hasn’t dressed. Our boys who needed surgery look ready to play before them.

If you have a link, I'd like to look at it.  A specialist makes me start to think stuff like... nerve damage, lack of blood flow, non-healing skin damage, or possible flaring infection.  Anything else just seems like a medical diagnosis failure, and it should have been addressed completely and aggressively in the off season with plenty of time to heal.  

Sometimes it feels like the team tends to have a hands-off approach to managing the players' heath, particularly with respect to the older players.

That was 2-3 seasons ago, not last season.

That it was. 2014-2015 was the first season, and he didn't go in for surgery between then and 2015-2016.

Looks like Fowler might be done for awhile. It never ends.

Yeah, probably like "until next season" awhile. That looked horrible. If he still has an ACL then I'll be shocked.

Unfortunately it sure looked like he blew out his ACL.

Saw him on tv last night the way he went down one is not sure if it's major or Day-to-Day. Hope it's sprained.

We kinda thought Fowler would be out a long time after Giordano kneed him as well, but he seemed to recover quick. Cam's knees don't recover like a normal human's. He'll be back in a month. Lol.

Let's hope that you are right lol, but last night's injury seemed to look much worse than Giordano's hit. The way his knee buckled and his weight coming down on it. If he doesn't have major structural damage is able to come back at some point this year then he must be part X-Men. 

Good to see that Getzlaf is back at practice. Hopefully, he, and at least Lindholm, will be back during the upcoming 4-game road trip, which is going to be a pretty tough one.

If your right, I will fly out to Canada and kiss you. Sadly, I don't think you are.

To all the Twitter savvy kids, any word of a Fowler update from the team?

This is Fowler's 4th knee injury. 

@icemancometh May be a knee injury and may not but just noting Fowler's history. Missed weeks in 2014, 2016 and last spring. Ducks lucky if that holds.

RC said Ryan Getzlaf and Hampus Lindholm just need to give the "green light" as far as playing Tuesday. Team practices Monday in Philly.

At what point do you tell players who are 60 or 70% to get their behinds back on the ice?  Is a an half effective Getzlaf or Kessler better than the current alternative?

When the playoffs start. Not in October.

Well he's played a game , and he's scored a goal in that one game. He was definitely healthy for that one game. Keywords: ONE GAME

@icemancometh He has avoided the dreaded ACL injury but there was an MCL sprain to his left knee in 2014 and a right knee sprain in 2016. The right one was affected again last spring when Calgary’s Mark Giordano hit him, knocking him out of the subsequent first-round sweep of the Flames.

Well I hope they have both knees fitted with good braces as he is obviously prone to knee injuries,even though he isn't a physical player.

I think he’s required this season on to skate with dual knee braces, instituted per last season  

It was good to see Kase. 

 

He was wearing braces and decided to stop wearing them before the start of last season.  I don’t know why he didn’t go back to the braces after his last injury.
