In a recent interview with Finnish publication Ilta Sanomat, Jesse Puljujarvi delved into the challenges he's faced during his recovery from a double hip replacement and the uncertainties surrounding his future in the NHL.

Is Puljujarvi Done?

Currently, the silence from the NHL about his status leaves many unanswered questions:
So far, nothing has been heard from the NHL, when everyone knows that it will take many more months to get fit. I know that there is some interest in the NHL, but let's wait until I get closer to playing condition, Puljujärvi says.

While the lack of updates from the NHL during this season phase can be alarming for many players, Puljujarvi remains hopeful, sensing that teams might be waiting for him to recover fully.

Puljujarvi Opens Up On His Recovery

Shedding light on his rehabilitation from a double hip surgery, Puljujarvi shared:
"The most difficult phase of all was 2.5 weeks after the operation. In the beginning it was just being able to walk. Now let's slowly start to wake up the muscles. There are 20-centimeter incisions on both sides of the buttocks. Now they are constantly trying to gain strength and mobility. It gets better every week" - Jesse Puljujarvi

Such updates provide a glimpse into the physical trials Puljujarvi confronted last season. His performance with the Oilers was notably impacted, as he appeared more restrained and less agile. With a successful recovery, there's hope that Puljujarvi can rejuvenate his career, if a team takes a chance on him.
