He's returning to full contact hockey. So I think it would potentially affect him early on.
So if I understand correctly you're saying that even at the 6 month mark the player undergoing torn labrum surgery will still not be 100%, basically? I understood that once 6 months are up for this kind of surgery that there are really no lasting effects.
Anyway, it seems you're the doctor (and I don't even play one on TV!)
