On January 23rd during the 2011-2012 hockey season, Lightning forward Dana Tyrell suffered a knee injury that would force him to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Dana underwent surgery on his right knee to repair an ACL. This was the same type of injury Dana suffered in 2009. The surgery to reconstruct the ligament in his knee has kept Tyrell off of the ice since the 23 of January, but it seems as though Dana may be back for the beginning of the next season. We all expected Dana to return, but what remained in question is how healthy he would be. Dana Tyrell has shared with the media that he is nearing “100 percent” health and that his rehab is going smoothly.
Right now I feel good. I’ll be continuing to workout and rehab the knee over the next couple of months, but I expect to be ready for training camp and I’m looking forward to the upcoming season. – Dana Tyrell
Dana’s last appearance on the ice was actually made quite recently. Saturday (July 7th) Dana Tyrell stepped on the ice at development camp in Brandon to present the 3 on 3 championship trophy to the winning team.
More from Dana:
I’m anxious to get back onto the ice. So by the time the season comes around, I feel like I’ll be in more of a rhythm and ready to return. I’ll be ready to go.
