I want an 18-year old hockey player to believe his hockey career is over due to injury. But I want him to be wrong. He would have gotten excellent medical care from the start, so it can't be anything like a treatment he just wasn't aware of. I think it needs to be something that heals up way better than he expected. I think I could work it that it's was just a very hard-to-recover-from injury, rather than an impossible-to-recover-from type. Does anyone have any ideas for an injury that would have seemed career-ending for several months but that would then turn out to be not really that bad?
