    James Wisniewski, a newly acquired player for the Hurricanes, is going to have to have a surgery performed to repair his ACL, which he injured in a tangle with the Predators' Viktor Arvidsson. This surgery will keep Wisniewski out of commission for at least 6 months, meaning he will miss the majority of this season. Injuries have plagued Wisniewski throughout his career. This is his 9th NHL season, and he's only had one year where he played more than 70 games.

    Here's a video of the incident. It was clearly unintentional by Arvidsson, no malice there, just an unfortunate accident.

    There's always SOMEONE who gets knocked out for basically the season at the very beginning, looks like this year it's Wisniewski. ACL tears are major, get better man. Must suck you don't get to play your favorite sport for the season.

    Sad to see players get excited for the season then miss the majority/all of it, and yes, it does look unintentional.

    ACL tears are no joke, seriously... Let me tell you a little story. The Bills had a linebacker, his name was Takeo Spikes. He tore his ACL during a game. You could tell right away, he wasn't pounding the ground in pain, it was frustration, because he knew he'd likely never be the same player again. And he wasn't. He was still good, still talented, but he was considerably better before the tear.

    Yeah I know about him- the last two years of his career were on my favorite team. (The Chargers) Like you said, he was decent, but nothing great like he was before the tear. It's always good to see the rare occasion when players return from ACL tears and are just as much of beasts as they were before. Because that does happen sometimes.

    Like Adrian Peterson... Good God he came back seemingly better after the tear. He looked better than before it...

    He's just a god or something though, no one should be running that well at his age...

    I fear Peterson will steal Fred Jackson's title as the Ageless Wonder. Oh well... Anyways, we've gone off-topic, haha.

    OUCH! That must hurt. I hope that he can recover from this, Carolina really needs him. Damn, this is Carolina's second leg-related long injury in the past two years (Jordan Staal and this).

    Ah the ACL, that's a tough break for Wisniewski. Hopefully he'll be better soon though, but that's one hell of an injury to recover from. Some of my friends that tore their ACL say it never feels the same and you can't do anything the same anymore :(
