Hunter Shinkaruk shut down for season/ needs surgery


Recommended Posts

Bet he would have made the WJC team for sure. This explains his lack of production in the WHL also. Guess they were waiting to see if it would heal on its own. Very cool that Sutter believed in him and wanted to give him as much of an oppourtunity as possible to make team Canada. He must be so pissed given his competitive nature. I wonder when the injury occured? Maybe in Canucks camp or Penticton?

Already posted in the Shinkaruk Talk thread as well:

Not sure how reliable the report is but the source is a WHL reporter for Yahoo sports. It'd certainly confirm what we've been thinking that Shinkaruk is still dealing with the hip injury and will take time to get it taken care of now that he's not at the WJHC.

Hodgson wasn't the same after his back injury.

Schroeder wasn't the same after his shoulder injuries.

Jensen wasn't the same after his concussion.

Let there be no mistake, this Shinkaruk season-ender will be a HUGE snag in his development, if not his overall career.

Come on dude. Don't be so depressing.
