Statsny May Be Done

Well, it looks as though Paul Statsny's season is over. Statsny was diagnosed with a broken foot and will now miss the next 2-4 weeks, while there is only just over 2 weeks left in the year. The injury bug has just riddled Statsny's season, which was full of promise and potential in October, especially since he went in the fourth round of the Draft to Dale B..

If his season truly is finished, like we assume that it is, Statsny will have finished the season with only 45 games under his belt, scoring 11 goals and adding 25 assists. Even his rate of scorng (0.80 points-per-game) was down significantly, likely due to his inability to stay in the line-up for long periods of time.

Right now, I would say he's still a good player to pick up in the earlier rounds of a Draft, as he hasn't earned the injury-prone tag just yet, but he now falls into the consideration column, especially if he is injured a couple more times next season.
