season is over due to injury. Hage will miss the final eight games of the regular season and any playoff contests due to a triceps injury that will require surgery. Last year, Hage missed everything after Labour Day due to a knee injury.
Now some might begin to wonder whether this is the end for Hage, but I think that is a tad premature. Two season-ending injuries in back-to-back seasons is worrisome, but Hage had never been seriously injured prior to last season, so this isn't the case of an injury-prone player breaking down even more. Hage is also just 31 years old, so even with the injury he could still have four or five more years of top-end production left in him. I don't think this is the last we've seen of Hage in a Tiger-Cat uniform.
I wish him a full and speedy recovery, and look forward to many more years of Hage pancaking opponents while wearing the Black & Gold.
