Anyone hear about this? Little has had some really bad luck with injuries the past few seasons. The Jets season is looking worse each passing day...

That’s awful. Things are stacking up against the Jets to be certain.

Hadnt heard about bleed.. but his career likely over... and long term effects depending on extent of bleed... having CTd a number of them and dealt with followups post... always some defict... think along the lines of a stroke.

Hank has a point.  It was a widely-enough believed rumor that it would have shaken me (were I in Hasek's skates) even if it just were a rumor.  And I'm not sure it was just a rumor.

Even though at this point if it were true Hasek would very likely have done what Eric Wynalda did a few years back and verify that DC Scum Captain 4 Life John Harkes had an affair with his wife before WC 98 (Which led to Harkes being dropped from the squad) he has repeatedly said there is no truth to it whatsoever.

Here is what a neurosurgeon had to say about it...

Based on the mechanism of injury and the news report, I think he has a cerebral contusion, basically a bruise in the brain.
That intracranial injury would be a separate issue from the laceration to the scalp and/or external ear, which required stitches (it’s not important to count the number of stitches exactly, so the estimated number is no surprise), and the ruptured ear drum.
Little wouldn’t likely have been kept in hospital unless there was intracranial bleeding (the contusion I’m suspecting he has). A scalp injury and ruptured eardrum wouldn’t require observation.

Contusions are common with concussions, basically what they are, bleeds are more consistent with some sort of skull fracture... the eardrum rupture could really effect his equilibrium and take a while to recover from let alone if a more serious bleed required placement of a shunt to reduce any swelling.... post balance issues I have seen a lot of and even seizure from trauma like this... That being said it really depends on the extent of the bleed and or contusion and if surgery is/was required.

1 point away from 9th. These guys better wake up tomorrow and stop the slide....

They can't win if they don't play.  They had most of last week off, and all of this week. But yes, they do need to win.

Geez.  Thought of Normand Leveille when saw your post.  Looks like it is nothing similar and he'll have a much better prognisis.  Good for him

Proving once again that refs are just awful and biased. Why did Clifford get the only penalty?

Nothing else was worthy of a call IMO.  Also, I disagree with the narrator; I think that was a good call on Clifford.

If you are a wrestling fan this is the injury (suffered after he delivered essentially a shoot headbutt in a match that was incredibly stupid and dangerous) NJPW's Katsua Shibata suffered that essentially ended his career (although it looks like he may be able to have another match but he will never be able to work full time again).

A brain bleed is what ended Joe Mesi’s boxing career.  And my son suffered one in a car accident when he was in middle school.  It took 4 years before he was right again.

Id be concerned if I were a Jets fan.

OT but hope your son is doing well and has no lasting effects. Also a reminder that there are far worse things than a crap hockey team.

Pretty fun TO/Philly game.

Too bad it couldn't end in a tie.

That should include the Sabres Back to Back with the Leafs 

Man, wonder who the Leafs play next? Would be a real shame if they were playing a team that is one of the best in the league who will be motivated like hell to flatten them in front of the most hostile and wild atmosphere you will see at an NHL game in 2019.

*Checks schedule*

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, just found it... in the States he'd be out of a job... tired of his stick... can't watch his phobic rants anymore and even his hockey analysis has fallen way off.
