Thanks to Nick in Texas for the pointer to a great roundup of stories on Dan Cleary's amazing jaw surgery:
Red Wings forward Dan Cleary chose to risk nerve damage to have three plates and over a dozen screws inserted into his jaw so that he could return to Detroit's line-up as soon as possible, and he's suffered adverse effects from his procedure.It was originally believed he would miss considerable time with the injury, but Cleary's expected to suit up tonight against St. Louis.
Cleary's had a terrific season, despite the injury, with 20 goals and 40 points in 57 games until this point, and he earned a nice long-term deal with Detroit. Keep your eye on him.
