Coming back to play a vital role in the playoffs after suffering a broke hand may have cost forward Brad MacMillan. MacMillan said his right hand is not healing correctly and may need surgery.
“I started having problems when I started driving up here,” MacMillan said from his home in Fairbanks, Alaska. “I just thought the pain might be part of the healing process, but it kept getting worse.”
MacMillan has consulted with a hand specialist who said he may need a plate and screws surgically inserted into the hand, which, MacMillan said, he was told could speed up the healing process. If surgery is required, MacMillan said he'll have it done in Fort Wayne. He hopes to re-sign with the Komets.
