Havlat Expected To Miss Significant Time

from the Daily Herald,

Whether he’s out a week, two weeks or the rest of the season, chalk it up as yet another lost season for injury-prone Blackhawks forward Martin Havlat.

Havlat injured his left shoulder again on his first shift of the second period in Wednesday’s home victory over Phoenix and underwent an MRI on Thursday afternoon. The results won’t be announced until today.

Hopes aren’t high, though, considering it’s the same shoulder Havlat hurt in an opening-night scrum in Minnesota, causing him to miss the next 22 games, and also the same one he had surgery on in Ottawa.

“I don’t think he’ll be back in the next week or two weeks,” Hawks coach Denis Savard said. “It’s pretty much the same type of injury he got in Minnesota.”

This guy just can’t stay healthy, hopefully next year will be different.
