He made laparoscopic surgery in both of his knees last fall, but only the right knee was fine.

After all possible rehabilitation and rest during the winter, he along with Lightning doctor to make a monster operation of the left knee.

It was at a sports clinic in Cleveland, which is known to operate athletes with complex knee injuries, says Mattias.

Cartilage Injuries

He has draits with cartilage damage in his knee in recent years and hopes that an artificial new structure in the left knee will be the solution.

- I've got a titanium plate inserted, and a piece of plastic, which lies against one another so that there is bone on bone. The doctors can not guarantee that it holds for the hockey game at top level, but my goal is to come back and play again, said Ohlund.

Right now he is in full swing with rehabilitation at home in Tampa Bay, Florida.

- I can do normal stuff and can walk without crutches or other aids, but the knee has not been tested under increasing pressure yet.

When will you know if there is and you can resume NHL career?

Worse in summer

How long have you had problems?

You do not give up?

- No, I'm set to try and see if you can play again.

Mattias Ohlund came to the NHL and Vancouver Canucks before the 1997-98 season.

He chose to sign on behalf of Tampa Bay summer 2009 and managed to play two seasons there before knäproblemen became acute last summer.

He could not participate in any league game this winter.

Am I missing something? It doesn't say anything about him retiring.

"The doctors can not guarantee that it holds for the hockey game at top level, but my goal is to come back and play again, said Ohlund."...

Old news. This was in discussion ever since he's got injured. His Knee is blown, and even if he comes back, he won't be at the same level. For a guy his age, even if he returns, how much more time will he be able to play?

It's a sad though, one of my favorite Canucks.

So just because one idiot says he's retiring without reading the article, you decide to do so as well? Tell me something, if someone decided jumping off a bridge was a good idea............
