Bleackley Expected to Miss Six Weeks
One of the main prospect stories entering this season is the contract situation regarding Avs 2014 first round pick Conner Bleackley. The deadline to ink Bleackley to an entry level contract is June 1st. Bleackley's role this season has been an interesting one.
He was stripped of his captaincy in a season in which his club, the Red Deer Rebels, is set to host the Memorial Cup this May. Bleackley has performed admirably to the position in which he has been asked to play. Yet, as things are starting to come together, the forward suffered a set back this past Saturday, in which he left a game with an apparent injury.
It has now been announced that he will miss six weeks due to a fractured knee cap.
