#### everything about this. That is a devastating injury for a young player in prime development years. He's pretty much a write off for the entire season.

Well, Kylington is on the team now I am guessing.

Oh man, this is absolutely horrible news. Wish him the best in recovery. How long do people need to recover from this, usually?

This probably also puts a damper on Brodie trade talks for now.

This may solve the Brodie on the team issue - at least from a roster-spot standpoint.

Damn. Was really hoping he would make Hanifin expendable this year.

That's a really bad and unfortunate injury for Valimaki.

Also, terrible news on the cap management front.

That is brutal - poor guy can't catch a break.

If he ends up missing the full season that likely means he will only have played 46 games over a 2 season stretch. That limited game time is never good for a young players development.

So that would likely mean:

Giordano - Brodie
Hanifin - Hamonic
Kylington - Andersson
