Sarich ‘up and moving,’ doesn’t expect surgery following accident

Jul 26, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT

If Cory Sarich’s Twitter updates are any indication, it seems like things have been looking up lately after what sounds like a scary accident from Tuesday.

Sarich appeared overwhelmingly positive about his situation on Friday, stating that he doesn’t believe he’ll need a brace or surgery. He also said that he thinks he’ll be able to leave the Calgary-area hospital he was staying at, although there’s been no confirmation either way:

Not surprisingly, there still hasn’t been an update regarding when or if the 35-year-old defenseman might be able to play in the NHL again. He’s currently an unrestricted free agent after playing for the Colorado Avalanche during the 2013-14 season.

    It’s gonna be tough for him to get a NHL contract again after this, but I could see him getting a two-way one somewhere where they need organizational defensive depth. Best of luck to Cory in his recovery and continuing his career.

      yeah, he was a borderline NHL d-man already and it’s hard to believe any team is going to be willing to take a chance on this guy now. sad because what happened was entirely out of his control. that’s life, though. he had a good run.
