Hockey Player Injured.

I’m a hockey fan and follow most teams. This just happened.
RALEIGH, N.C. - Justin Williams has suffered another major setback.
The Carolina Hurricanes winger tore his right Achilles tendon on Wednesday morning and will miss the next four to six months.
He’ll undergo surgery later this week.
I’m sure we all know what lies ahead for him.
