Playing in the 300th game of his NHL career, Mika Zibanejad both scored a goal and suffered a broken fibula. It was hard to watch - and, no doubt due to both that, as well as the fact that he’s been having a good first season with the Rangers, the outcry and well-wishing began in earnest.
Well, Zibanejad heard you, and he appreciates it.
So heartwarming to get all these kind messages and support from you guys. I'm really looking forward to getting back on the ice soon! #LGR— Mika Zibanejad (@MikaZibanejad) November 21, 2016
Amidst the numerous offers from fans for him to take their legs - something he does not appear to be taking anyone up on - are more and more “get well soon”s.
Zibanejad is expected to be out for 6-8 weeks, so his recovery likely won’t be as soon as we’d all like - but as long as he’s back at 100%, that’s what matters.
In the meantime, it can’t hurt to share more positive vibes, right? Here’s another get well soon message!
