Poor Morrow is going to need surgery on his knee and will likely be out six months. That would put us well into May, and I was already doubting we’d still be playing hockey then.
He has got to be devastated, just like the rest of us are. I’m sure the last thing he wants is to have to leave the team at a time like this.
The thing that amazes me, though, is that he tore his ACL in the middle of a game but managed to get up and leave the ice without Ralph and Razor noticing. It wasn’t until he started missing shifts that they wondered where he was.
The same thing happened when he got his wrist sliced open by a skate a couple of seasons ago. He jumped up and raced off the ice and down the tunnel without anybody noticing. The guys in the truck had to hunt down the video of it later.
He’s a tough dude. And this is bad, bad, bad news.
