Knighthawks' Hall to Miss Eight Weeks After Sports Hernia Surgery
from press release
Rochester Knighthawks forward Jordan Hall underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a sports hernia. The Surrey, BC, native is expected to miss eight weeks, while he recovers from the surgery performed Dr. James Peacock, who is the Associate Professor of Surgery and Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
"It is disappointing, but I would rather miss the first four games instead of the last four games," said Hall.
Hall, 25, was selected by Rochester with the third overall pick in the NLL Dispersal Draft of Orlando Titans players. Last season, he was named a Second Team All-Pro and led all transition players in assists with 58, finishing fourth overall in the league in the category. His 74 points were tied for the 16th most in the league. In his career, the former first-overall pick has averaged nearly five points per game with 224 (65+159) in 47 games. Hall was named to the NLL All-Rookie Team in 2008.
He has also represented his country, playing for Team Canada at the World Lacrosse Championships, winning gold in 2006 and silver in 2010. He was recently named to Team Canada for the 2011 FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.
