Staal With Facial Fractures, Vision Still Not 100%

Before tonight's game against the Rangers, Jordan and Eric Staal gave us update's on brother Marc's eye injury.

Jordan told Pat Leonard at the the Daily News that Marc has a scar above his eye that's healed up nice, but has a few fractures that need to heal. Jordan adds that Marc is hopefull to play again this season.

Jordan also told Katie Strang at that he thinks Marc will play with a visor when he comes back.

Meanwhile, Eric tells Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record that Marc's vision is still not 100%, but he didn't lose any teeth.

…good news and bad news here. Obviously, Marc won't be returning anytime soon so we better get used to Hamrlik, but is also encouraging to hear that he's hopeful to return this season.

…btw, Torts' head must have exploded after hearing that the Staal brothers gave these updates. Think he'll send Haley after both of them tonight as payback?
