    That's extremely serious.

    I doubt he's going to return to competitive skating.

    I mean it's very much possible (cue Shen/Zhao) but after 3 months hardly moving his leg, it's going to take him an extremely long time to return to shape.

    Broken bone chip in the knee joint. I had that 18 years ago. I did not have surgery (since I was and am no athlete) but they put my knee in a cast for 6 weeks. It took me months afterward to get over the limp, but eventually it recovered to normal (sort of). I don't think the injury itself is necessarily fatal to his career but who knows ...

    So sorry to here about Bryce, I hope he can recover and that this won't end his skating career.

    If Jessica does singles, do you think she might be able to qualify for worlds or four continents considering the caliber of the women's field in Canada without Joannie?

    Sorry to hear about Bryce :(. Just wondering if Jessica did Sectionals in singles? Doesn't one have toqualify in Sectionals to go to Challenge?

    Wow, I didn't realize Bryce had had such a serious injury. Best of luck to Jessica.

    ETA: and to Bryce, of course

    I would imagine they'd give her a bye.

    Dube has all triples up to lutz, no? Her speed and carriage are superior to most Canadian ladies barring Rochette, so she should be in contention.

    This makes me extremely sad. I know I'm in the vast minority here, but now that S&Z are retired, D&D were by far my favourite pair, and they were one of the few teams I was actually looking forward to seeing in this season's very depleted field. :(

    The article said she skated singles in jr. but I'm sure she skated senior ladies last Canadians I was at. Ottawa, 05 maybe?

    I might be wrong and it was only Bryce?

    Ouch, that's definitely worse than the vague "knee injury" we'd heard about. Poor Bryce.

    How long has it been since Jessica did singles? A couple of seasons?

    Best of luck for a full recovery to Bryce.

    Intersting training if Jessica does singles, she and Cynthia would really push each other I hope.

    It seems the couple has had their share of injuries and accidents.
    We’ve seen quite many injuries and surgeries this season so far. Lepisto, Nagasu, Bates, Virtue and now Davison, to name a few. Nothing would be more frustrating for the athletes than being sidelined for a long period with a serious injury. Wish a fast and complete recovery for each of them.
    Best wishes for Dube, too.

    I'm pretty sure she skated singles as a senior. I seem to remember that when people started to take notice of them as a pair, she was still skating singles. Or am I thinking of Meagan Duhamel....:lol:

    Pretty sure of that too... I would say 2006 and 2007 Canadian championships at the very least.

    She didn't (Quebec sectionals just finished this weekend) and one does have to qualify. Perhaps there is some provision for discretion on the part of Skate Canada somewhere in the rulebook.

    This really could change the feel of the pairs competition at Canadians, since I think the other pairs assumed they were fighting for silver or lower. Now they would be fighting for the gold.

    This has got to be very tough for both of them, but especially Bryce. Sorry to hear about this.

    She skated in seniors a few times. The last time, I believe, was in 2008, when she finished sixth overall.

    Jessica was 8th in 2006 Senior Ladies and 18th in 2007 (this was the year she only skated the short program.) :rollin:

    I hope Bryce recovers well from his injury and best of luck to Jessica as she skates in singles this year. They will be missed at Canadians in the pairs competition. :(

    I'm sure Bryce would LOVE that. :lol::mad:

    I've never heard of this injury, but hopefully Bryce is able to make a full recovery and can skate again by next season. He is young and athletic, so that should help the rehab process. It's sad that D&D won't get to compete this year. :(

    Holy crap this is a shock to the pairs system.
    I hope Bryce can recover well and keep active in some way with the injury.

    I'm now looking forward to see what Jessica can do in singles

    While Jessica can land the jumps, she isn't a strong (or consistent) jumper. I could see her making the top 10, but with the looks of how Amelie Lacoste, Cynthia Phaneuf and Myriane Samson are able to skate, and if Joannie comes back, I highly doubt Jessica will make the world team.

    Since it has been announced that Joannie will be doing the US Stars on Ice tour, it would appear that she is not intending to compete this season.

    Me three. :(

    Ouch, that’s extensive. :yikes: Poor guy, he’s going to be miserable being laid up for so long. Best wishes to him for a full recovery. And good for Jess to keep herself busy in the meantime. It'll be nice to see her skate again, but a bit sad to see her skating alone. :(

    Jessica can skate with Scott Moir while their partners heal! But which discipline? Can he jump? Can she dance? Inquring minds want to know!

    i remember her and duhamel both sakting pairs AND singles-

    above
    I too remeber that she withdrew ( jessica) after the short program and I thought it was odd- why even DO both then pull at the last miinute- i mean the schedule is known months in advance? :huh:

    Good idea!

    according to her facebook page yes they are ;)

    From wikipedia:

    2007 - 2008: 6th (Senior Ladies)
    2006 - 2007: Withdrew
    2005 - 2006: 8th (Senior Ladies)

    2003 - 2004: 2nd (Junior Ladies)
    2002 - 2003: 5th (Junior Ladies)
    2001 - 2002: 2nd (Junior Ladies)

    Jessica also collected two bronze medals in the 03/04 and 04/05 seasons on the Junior Grand Prix circuit.

    I really hope Skate Canada is able to let Jessica compete at Canadian Nationals.

    Didn't Dube stop competing in singles after Skate Canada said they would punish skaters who only competed in the SP, since it was unfair to take a spot from someone who planned to complete the competition?

    He couldnt jump, she couldnt dance ;)
    They could skate together maby only in shows
    For me its look werid - she wasnt strong jumpre before and could spend this year for some privite sings.
    And did Cody Hay find a new patner? I think Redford to tall fro Duhemel and she could skate with Hay and Jessica - with Eric.
    Hope Bryce will have full recover. Really sad for him :(

    So sad for Bryce. I hope he has a complete recovery. I think Jessica competing in singles is a good way of keeping her active. Good luck to them both!

    Scott doesn't have the build to do pairs; he's way too short! I think I saw him doing a double (maybe triple?) jump during practice for 2010 Worlds Ex on YouTube. I'm not sure whether Jessica does dance though; aren't the skills involved very different from pairs?

    D/D have had such rotten luck with injuries. :( Best of luck to both of them and may Bryce get well soon!

    Ouch! Here's hoping Bryce heals quickly and is back on the ice with Jessica ASAP.

    On the other hand, we now have an explanation for the PCS for the Canadian pairs at Skate Canada. ;)
