    Dominic Turgeon is out with thoracic outlet syndrome after having a blood clot in his right arm.

    Will be evaluated by Stamkos's surgeon. Procedure requires partial removal of a rib.

    I hope he will be ready to assume duties in Detroit next fall, but his summer training will be curtailed.

    Yikes, that sounds nasty. Hope everything goes smoothly, and he can make a full recovery.

    DOMINIC TURGEON OUT INDEFINITELY
    [​IMG]
    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.
    – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday announced that center Dominic Turgeon will be out of the lineup indefinitely while undergoing treatment for thoracic outlet syndrome, which caused a blood clot affecting his right arm that was diagnosed yesterday prior to the team’s road game against the Texas Stars.

    Dr. Ryan Turley performed a procedure to alleviate the clot Wednesday evening at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center in Round Rock, Texas. Turgeon is scheduled for another procedure today before a consultation next week in Tampa, Fla., with Dr. Karl Illig, who successfully treated Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos for a similar condition two years ago.

    It is expected that Turgeon will resume his playing career after making a full recovery. Further updates on his condition and prognosis will be provided as warranted.

    After winning a Calder Cup championship with the Griffins last year as a rookie, the 22-year-old Turgeon more than doubled his goal total and nearly doubled his point total this season, posting 14 goals and 32 points in 69 games. The son of longtime NHLer Pierre Turgeon, he made his NHL debut with the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 14 and appeared in five games with the parent club.

    What a shame, he was carving out a career as a 4th line center. This will set him back if he misses a substantial amount of training. This also really screws over the Griffins, who will be their 2C?

    Wow, that sounds pretty bad having a partial rib removed. Hope it goes well.

    It's the exact same condition that Steven Stamkos had a couple seasons ago.
