    According to Ted Wyman from the Sun he's out long term. Will alert when we find out more.

    This comes from Coach Noel's pre-game presser. Will have audio up soon.

    Really upsetting to here.
    Forget hockey, I just hope Paul can get healthy.

    Puts a damper on the day.

    Yep - if not handled correctly (or even when handled correctly), it can be life threatening. Wish him well.

    This really sucks and is very scary. I hope he's okay, that it's not as serious as it sounds and he's back soon. I've really been rooting for him this season and I thought the last couple games were amongst his best. He really seemed to be settling down and gaining in confidence.

    Anyone know the ETA on Redmond's injury? Good thing we have all this right handed depth!

    I've updated the post to include coach Noel's pre-game presser which spent the first minute discussing the blood clot.

    Damn, that sucks. Wish him all the best, hopefully the Jets medical team figures out the best treatment for him.

    Well... With Postma, Redmond and Trouba all out, we're wearing thin.

    Sheet. I thought the PostMan was really improving his last several games. Hope he is OK.

    Kichton and Redmond are our only other pro-level RHD.

    Kichton has been doing well offensively but not NHL calibre yet.

    He's on their current road trip, although not playing yet. He'll need some conditioning time regardless.

    Best wishes to him. Here is an good article about Fleischmann, who is able to play NHL hockey after problems with blood clots.

    Thanks!

    I wonder if we'll see him then. Unless Trouba recovers like the superman he is.....

    Good thing they caught it.
    Trauma and long haul flights can be contributing factors. Not sure if teams have specific protocols in place to reduce incidences of blood clots. Thomas Fleischmann had this a couple of years back and is okay now. See Freudian's mention above.
    All the best for a speedy recovery.

    Tough break for Postma. All the best in his recovery.

    So if Trouba or Redmond aren't healthy soon we're stuck playing 4LD & 2RD. Didn't think of this when the season started. Bogo & Buff better stay healthy and avoid the wrath of Shanny.
