While it’s not great to see him in hospital, at least Barry Douglas can start his rehab now and be ready for preseason.

We already knew that Douglas was going to be out for the rest of the season, so him getting surgery and in a cast shouldn’t be a surprise, but it still kind of stinks to see him laid out in hospital. But this does mean that his recovery and rehab can start right away, meaning that there is a chance for him to be good to go before the start of next season, if not the preseason.

On to the links.
