A lot of people suspected this. Shame, especially when he was finding his game/confidence.

I knew it instantly. 

A lot of people were not keen on him anyway, I was not one of those people. Its a loss for sure. Not only because he's out, but because Thing 1 and Thing 2 will alternate being in.

I've been a big fan of him since preseason and was a big fan of the trade when we made it, hopefully he has a quick recovery and doesn't miss a beat when he comes back

Kane came back 7 weeks after surgery from breaking his.  McDavid was more like 12 weeks.

Maybe he'll be just as good as those two when he comes back.

That's a shame as he was just starting to find some consistency. Hope he comes back stronger and hell bent to reclaiming place.

Including the coaching staff earlier on, but it looked like their tough love approach was starting to pay off.  Thing 1 and Thing 2...I like that, that's pretty funny.  Hopefully one of them can be not-awful.

This stinks.  I thought he was really improving.  He's only played 67 NHL games, so I was liking that Santini, Butcher and Mirco were kind of playing and improving at the same time.  Throw in 23 year old Severson, that could be a decent little nucleus on the back end as this team keeps evolving and developing.

Heal fast, Mirco.

Very disappointing news. Would have been nice to see Zajac and Mojo back in the lineup and get a look at what the team looks like completely healthy.

He was being used in every situation. And in the last minute of game(s) Somewhere along the line he gained trust of coaching. He'll be missed. 

Beside Prout/Lovejoy, there's no one in Binghamton crying to get out of there. Who is there best D man so far?

Completely agree with all of that.  Really cool to see a few of our young D men improve and develop together, and indeed I was intrigued and optimistic that this could be a pretty decent core of players on the blue line for the next several years to come.  Ideally I'd still like to bring in another solid veteran guy back there (someone of the ilk of Shattenkirk or Carlson), and perhaps another young guy coming through the pipeline, but as others has mentioned I'm just not sure if there's anyone in the minors ready for some NHL level action. 

Let's hope he heals quickly and might be ready for a return shortly after the new year.

Is there a reason to wait so long after injury for surgery? Swelling? Hope he heals quick he seemed to just start getting used to his role.

Probably just needs time for the bone to fuse together.The break affects arm/shoulder movement as well so my guess is he confined to the sling until further notice. No practicing or working out.

I also feel Hayden got away with a elbow on the play. They say they will know more of a timetable for return after his surgery scheduled for Thursday!

Swelling is usually the reason a required surgery gets delayed.

Don't rush him back. Make sure it heals properly. Was starting to like his play.
