Kalinski update (updated)

The Post-Star newspaper of upstate New York recently did a story on former Mav Jon Kalinski (right). I heard a little bit about this last year. According to Tim McManus' article, Kalinski needed major surgery after suffering from compartment syndrome, severe muscle trauma and swelling that could lead to permanent muscle loss. The syndrome was the result of a hit that Kalinski took in his 12th NHL game. Kalinski currently skates on the top line for the Philadelphia Flyers' AHL team, the Adirondack Phantoms, although he has played in 10 NHL games this season.

UPDATE: Thanks to an alert reader, here is more on Kalinski's injury. He did a commercial and website for the medical folks who got him back on the ice.

In other recent MSU alum news, Ryan Carter has had an up-and-down season for the Ducks this year. ... The Times-Leader did a Q&A with Steve Wagner, who actually wanted to be a goaltender at one point.
