I've been wondering about David for awhile. He suffered a concussion on December 18 and went on the IR on January 4. Yesterday, he didn't make it to a team photo. All we know at this point is found in Luke's LSB post today:
Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford described Tanabe as "week to week" but if he's in no shape to leave the house even for a team picture, it's obviously not a good situation.
How about some deeper digging N&O crew? It's going on two months away from the team for the poor kid. What's he going thru? What's the prognosis? How are the club and his teammates helping him get thru this? One report I read said his parents were having to drive him around town.
