Wishing Matt a speedy recovery, but it appears to be season ending.

Btw, is it fair to ask if both these kids might have made their injuries worse by trying to play through them? Bucknell is so mum about saying anything about injuries.

Not sure it is season-ending. O'Reilly himself said he is supposed to be out six weeks - which could get him back for the final one or two regular season games. Since it has reportedly bothered him all season, there is definitely the possibility that it may have affected his shooting and overall play all year.

In Mackenzie's case, from all of what I read I don't think he made it worse - it just didn't get better. Numerous pro athletes continued to play with a torn abdominal muscle. Many got better. Some did not - and eventually opted for surgery. Hard to tell with O'Reilly. Stress reactions are often tough to diagnose, especially if the athlete has the mentality of playing through it. I think the Bucknell medical staff generally does a very good job - especially with all the collaboration they now have with Geisinger.
