The injury bug continues to nip Trey Fix-Wolansky.
On March 20th vs. Grand Rapids, he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee. Before the injury, he tallied 4-5-9 in nine games with the Cleveland Monsters. The speedy winger was the Blue Jackets' seventh-round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, and he's shown great scoring potential, especially this season, but he continues to struggle with injuries.
Today, the Blue Jackets announced that Fix-Wolansky had underwent successful surgery on Friday to repair his ACL, and that he's expected to recover in approximately six months, which would be late September.
Fix-Wolansky has tallied 16-19-35 in 52 career games with the Monsters, but this is his second major injury in his second season with Cleveland. In his rookie year, he suffered a groin injury, and he only played in 43 of Cleveland's 62 games. He's got a lot of potential, and he's only 21, but staying healthy will be important going forward.
