Tom Schreiber is regarded by some as the best player in the world right now. Schreiber has been one of the most dominating players over the past couple of years in the field game as well as the box game. Schreiber partially tore his PCL playing for the Toronto Rock in the NLL last season and missed quite a bit of action. During the MLL season with the Ohio Machine Schreiber would play early on but was then put on IR before returning with Team USA for the World Championships in Israel.

While with Team USA Schreiber would help lead the USA to a Gold Medal win over Canada. Schreiber actually scored the goal with a few seconds left that gave the USA the win. Schreiber would return with Ohio in the MLL for the end of the season after his run with Team USA. 

Schreiber was a key piece for both Toronto in the NLL and Ohio in the MLL this past season as he really fueled the offense's both squads. It was apparent Schreiber was a driving force behind each team when he was sidelined as both teams performances went down without him.

On Thursday Schreiber took to Instagram to let everyone know that he would be having surgery on his left knee and would be back soon. A timetable for Schreiber's recovery is unknown at this time, but it usually takes 4-6 months to heal and rehab a torn ligament in your knee. In some cases it can take up to a year. Exactly when we will see Schreiber back in a jersey either in the NLL or MLL is unknown at this time.

Wishing Tom the best of luck as he recovers and rehabs from his knee surgery. We all hope to see him back on the field at 100% sooner rather than later.
