Williams to Have Reconstructive Knee Surgery

My heart goes out to Carolina Hurricanes forward Justin Williams who tore his ACL last night in a loss against the Florida Panthers. He'll be out for 4-6 months after his surgery! If you aren't familar with this type of injury, here is an explination from ehealthmd:

"The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most important of four strong ligaments connecting the bones of the knee joint. It is often injured."

What a tough break! He was on the ballot for the NHL All Star Game which is played January 27th.
