So Taylor Twellman is out for the season as reported on the Revs site. Bad news indeed. Not only is he our best attacking player, but he also takes up a big part of the salary cap.
His injury must be career threatening. I'm not an expert on concussions and don't know exactly what his injury is but lets look at it this way. Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins suffered a severe concussion which some said could be career threatening. It was awful. He went weeks in which he couldn't do anything. He was dizzy and had trouble walking. He was out for less than a year. He's now back and is playing in the NHL. Twellman has been out considerably longer which makes me wonder if he'll ever be back. The season ends in October. It's June and the team is saying he's done for the year. This is very worrisome. I hope he makes a full recovery and is able to return at some point, but I have to admit that it doesn't look very good at the moment.
