NHL.com Profiles Marc Cheverie & His Injury

"I got to play with Marc over the summer and yeah, he's a really good goalie," Pittsburgh Penguins captain and fellow Cole Harbour native Sidney Crosby told NHL.com recently. "He's a great kid and I think he's got a bright future."
University of Denver goaltender Marc Cheverie is off to an outstanding start this season, with a 4-0-0 record, 1.27 goals-against average, .959 save percentage and three shutouts. He is the national leader in wins, GAA and save percentage, and is a surprise early-season Hobey Baker candidate. Headed into this weekend's action, he and the Pioneers were ranked No. 3 in the NHL.com Top 10 Poll and sat in a three-way tie atop the WCHA, with archrival Colorado College and North Dakota.

Instead of getting ready to help his team try and take over first place in the WCHA with a two-game set against the Fighting Sioux, however, Cheverie is at home nursing what thankfully wasn't a career-ending injury. (read rest of article)

So what are the prospects he will be back for the ND games. I don't think I could watch Murray playing both nights.

I really don't want to see Murray in either game.

There are a bunch of differing stories. Chevy says he'll be good, NHL says 2+ more weeks, Chambers says soon. Place your bets, folks, 'cuz nobody has a damn clue.

I don't think DU should rush him back into the lineup just because he wants to be there.

It's not about what Chevy or even his coaches want.

This should be a doctor's decision, based on his ability to perform his tasks relative to his healing body.

Well, if the coaching staff wants to truly have a 2 goalie system like they say they do... they better squash all this "when's he coming back" garbage right now. Who the hell cares when he comes back? He'll come back when the Dr and the coach say he'll come back. What's the big flippin deal about the Dakota series? It's not like we're headed to the playoffs in March ..... Frankly, this might be GOOD to throw Adam in there - he better get used to it. Remember - they brought him here for a reason. They only way you learn & get better is by being in the "big" games.

its a big deal because its the biggest series of the year. If DU can win this series or at least get a split, it could really help in March when they're really scrambling for points to win the MacNaughton cup. Its also a big series because its NODAK. FUCK THEM

i think it's funny that someone said "it's not like we're headed to the playoffs in march"

wow, someone took his/her dose of haterade.

not only are we going to the playoffs, we won the MacNaughton cup and we're about the smash cc this weekend.
