James Sheppard out 3-4 Months
According to the Star Tribune, Minnesota Wild center James Sheppard will be out 3-4 months with a knee injury sustained from an ATV accident in Vail, Colorado. He has already undergone surgery and head coach Todd Richards claimed it happened on James Sheppard's kneecap. After signing a one year contract with the team in the offseason, the road to building a solid reputation in the NHL will have to be even longer. Sheppard was drafted 9th overall in 2006 and has registered 49 points in 224 games.
