12:01 PM ET 02.25 | During the 2014 Winter Olympics, New York Islanders forward John Tavares suffered a knee injury when playing for Team Canada that forced him to withdraw from the remainder of the Sochi Games. The Islanders captain suffered an MCL injury that many thought could end his season. While Tavares will not take the ice for the rest of the year, the good news is that his injury was not as severe as it was initially believed to be. According to the team, Tavares "only" suffered a partially torn MCL that will not require surgery. The timetable for his rehab is 8-12 weeks.

It was the MCL but, when he got back, he tripped over Garth's d*i*c*k and tore the ACL too.
