Found September 04, 2012 on

What was once believed to be an injury that could cost Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian the first 15-20 games of the upcoming NHL regular season could now sideline the blueliner for up to six months. Following surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, Bogosian may not be able to return until some time in February, or even a bit later. That would put him on track to return for less than half of the 2012-2013 regular season. Then again, with a pending NHL Lockout set to begin on September 15, and with no end date currently in site, Bogosian may not miss quite as large of a percentage of games this season. That is, if there is a season at all. Either way, the Jets have already gone on record as stating that the surgery was a success, and that the typical recovery time for something like this is around four to six months, with an emphasis being on the latter. Still, if Bogosian is a very quick healer, he could return right around the NHL All-Star break. Again, that is, if we do indeed have an All-Star game this year. The city of Columbus is certainly banking on it. While Bogosian is out,  Paul Postma and Derek Meech are expected to compete with AHL defensemen Zach Redmond and Will O’Neill for the opportunity to play an NHL top-six role in Bogosian’s absence. The Jets are not planning on going the free agency route or pursue a trade to replace Bogosian, as his salary is still going to count against the cap, regardless of how many – or how few – games he is able to play next season. Bogosian, 22, had five goals and 25 assists in 65 games with Winnipeg last season.
