Freak accidents are a part of hockey. When played properly many players can walk away from a game without a bruise, when not played properly injuries of all sorts can happen. Columbus Blue Jackets prospect was checked into the boards earlier this week which left him with an injury that made the team fear for the worst.

Sonny Milano was checked into the boards during Thursdays 6-4 win against the Minnesota Wild prospects. It was originally said Milano would miss eight weeks to recover from several facial fractures.

After further testing it was revealed that the 18 year old did not require surgery and there was no displacement and he might return in two weeks. It is hard for them to put a timeframe on him but no matter what the team will not rush his recovery.

 Blue Jackets president John Davidson said, "“There is no surgery required for him. When you think of a time frame, it’s really hard to tell. He will miss a little bit of time, but not a lot of time – it all depends on how it heals."

Once healthy Milano is expected to play the 2014-2015 season with the OHL Plymouth Whalers. The Blue Jackets selected Milano 16th overall in the 2014 NHL draft.
