Grant done for the year

While Minnesota State is excited about its improved health, not everything is rosy on the injury front. Mavericks coach Troy Jutting confirmed that sophomore forward Chase Grant will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip next month.

Since Grant played in just five games to start the season, he will apply for and should receive a medical hardship waiver, which means he will still have three years of eligibility remaining starting next season.

"Obviously, it's not good for our hockey team," Jutting said. "But the good thing is it happened early enough in the season where he can get a medial redshirt and not lose a year of eligibility."

Grant will have the surgery in his hometown of Oklahoma City after first-semester classes end in early Deember.

Grant was expected to be one of the Mavericks' top returning players this season. He had no points after being shut down. Last year he had eight goals and 12 assists in 33 games.

Shane probably has to confirm a story BEFORE posting. We can simply speculate and post things that are likely to happen without recourse. If Shane posts without confirmation and is wrong you would be all over him. Plus, Shane has more information in the story than a single statement, which I appreciate.
Get healed Chase and join this young group of good players next year.

Crossjcek. exactly. We hear things that we don't have to confirm. We get to come on hear and spout nothing more than opinions and sometimes unconfirmed rumors. Shane has to wait until coaches etc. confirm or put out the news. Big difference.
