Zednik samples Buffalo's wings

Sonya Noor, M.D., the attending surgeon for Richard Zednik, said the Florida Panther player continues to improve and should be discharged sometime over the next 48 hours.

Dr. Noor confirmed Zednik’s condition Thursday afternoon. She added, “He asked if he could eat Buffalo chicken wings yesterday – so we let him.”

Picasso’s Pizza of Western New York donated wings and pizza Wednesday night for the Zednik’s as well as the nursing staff at Buffalo General Hospital.

What's going to be interesting is if he attempts a return this season, something that seems more and more likely as we go along here.

Though the Malarchuk and Zednik injuries are not necessarily the same, Malarchuk was back in a NHL game 13 days after his neck was sliced.

I would not be terribly surprised if Zednik skates again this season. There may be more of a physcological block than a physical one.

Yea, just a cut (even if it was severe) It's not like he has to wait for a bone to heal back up.

So, if he plays again this year, is Zednik the frontrunner for the Masterton, or what?

Wait, so he eats wings and it wasn't even the Anchor Bar?

Sacrilege! James even you could attest to them being the best wings ever.

Glad to hear he is doing well!

I wonder if he will wear a neck protector or not when he comes back? Surely after what he's been through he will?

I wonder if the fact that he sliced an artery instead of a vein will delay his recovery more. Since arteries carry blood away from the heart, they have to withstand a higher blood pressure than veins.

Glad to see he isn't stuck with just hospital food. :)

I dunno, I'd worry about a severed artery popping apart while exercising or something.
