Winter Dew Tour Injury Report [12/12/12]2012-12-10
The TNF PPO is over and Dew Tour is here. Qualifiers start today. Trading will be open until tonight sometime, so be sure to check out the injury report AND qualifiers lists before making final adjustments to your team.
Wing Tai Barrymore (Q): Wing Tai blew up at X Games last year, blowing both ACLs in one go. He's got youth and a long recovery period on his side. Unfortunately, he's also recovering form two blown knees. But he's been sliding around on snow.
Sammy Carlson (P): Sammy had that horrific fall at Winter X Games 16 Big Air last season, which ended his 2012 FFL campaign. But he's lookin' pretty good this year and seems to fully recovered. Still, you never know, once a knee gets injured, it's always prone to new injury.
Joss Christensen (O): One of the more prolific scorers from last FFL season (as an athlete and player), Joss underwent some operations this off season: Micro fracture surgery on one leg, scope on it later, and hernia surgery on his mid section. While not major procedures, the Park City native will need a strong rehab season and is opting out of the Dew Tour.
Simon Dumont (Q): The Dumont suffered a torn ACL at European X Games practice last March. Apparently his knee is solid, but he did just undergo wrist surgery last night. For anyone else that would definitely keep them out of Dew Tour, but it's the Dumont, so we're not sure. He might suck it up and compete. Consider him Questionable right now and if he competes, to be limited.
Grete Eliassen (D): G-Baby tore her ACL at the Winter Dew Tour Killington stop last January. She's been hunkered down in her home state of Utah rehabbing at the Center of Excellence, so she should be good to go come December. The bigger question mark is whether or not she will choose to compete, as she's been lessening her competition workload the past two seasons.
JF Houle (L): Quebecois JF Houle underwent serious shoulder surgery at the end of the season, after toughing out multiple contests where he was clearly limited by the ailment. The healing time on that surgery is upwards of four or five months, but the Houligan should be good to go.
Jen Hudak (O): Hudak has recently Twittered that she is "not competing this weekend but will be ready to rock at Copper Grand Prix!!"
Chris Laker (D): Chris Laker, amidst a breakout season, unfortunately fell prey to a knee injury just prior to Euro X. He's young and strong. With six-plus months under his belt and couple more to come, Chris should be good to go for Dew, even if it's in a limited capacity.
Kim Lamarre (Q): Yet another victim of the blown knee, Kim has been on a fitness rampage (as seen on her Twitter and Instagram). She's been rehabbing and doing physio with NHL players, so we're confident she'll be ok for this coming season. That said, she is still limited at the time of this post.
Devin Logan (IR): D-Lo suffered a blown knee this fall season, so consider her out for an extended period of time, likely the entire season.
Meg Olenick (Q): Meg fell prey to the knee bug this winter, as well as most everyone else. She's been on a serious rehab stint and all words point to her being very healthy. However, she is a multiple knee injury vet, so take that into consideration for this season.
Tucker Perkins (Q): Knees, knees, knees. Tucker did his knee last year as well, but seeing as he's one of the more impressive physical specimens on the tour, we have no problem in backing him being ready by December.
Kevin Rolland (Q): The two-time X Games gold medalist (in Aspen) was yet another big name to go down last year. So watch for Kevin to possibly be limited in the early season, but don't count him out for the entirety of the season.
Brita Sigourney (P): Brita blew her knee just before Euro X, giving her a leg up on names like Dumont and Perkins. She's killing it in the recovery world, so expect her to put up some numbers.
David Wise (Q): David did his knee a little later than most, so he might be questionable moving into the Dew Tour and Grand Prix, but all indications point to him being ready for X Games, if not the Grand Prix at Copper.
Torin Yater-Wallace (O): The Yater Bomb is about three weeks removed from serious shoulder surgery. One of the top FFL athletes last year will most likely be on the shelf for the first couple of events, aiming for a breakout around X Games or World Championships in Norway. We'll keep a close eye on him after Christmas.
