    From the Globe & Mail

    This suggests they will both continue to keep skating, but I'd wait for the actual press conference before assuming anything (edited to note that the CBC is running the exact same story, which suggests that it's probably from a SkateCanada PR release):

    I almost wished they didn't say anything unless they had some real information.

    I'm surprised but not surprised. They didn't seem to gel too well to me in the last season, and she always looks a bit miserable. They never really pushed on after their world bronze or fulfilled their potential IMO. Plus, hasn't he had a MAJOR injury?

    Anyway, I know nothing; maybe there's more to it than meets the eye.

    Best of luck to both.

    He had very bad injury. So what this mean he is free?

    My thoughts exactly

    I've always wanted him to have another partner. Although a Canadian pairs lady that is up to his current standard today is hard to find...

    It means I don't like Jessica Dube much, and if he wants to pursue skating, I'd like to see him do it with someone else. She's been an emotional drag on him for years...in my very biased opinion.

    I'm skeptical if Davison can recover from this injury well enough to compete at a high level again. It'll be interesting to see if he talks about his recovery during the press conference.

    I'm not really surprised at all by this. I hope he is able to find a new partner and continue to skate. Jessica in recent years seemed to want to be anywhere else but skating with him.

    Maybe they both can find success with new partners if they choose to go that route.

    But who could skate with him, even if he will have good recover?
    I think they didnt have good chance to be in team Canada - now its look, like Canada have 3 not bad teams without Jess and Bryce

    I think Bryce's injury would take a long time to come back, but as long as re-attaching the bone chip was successful, I can't think of any reason why he wouldn't be able to skate again all the post-surgery scarring went away. It's not like a tendon graft, where you could have rejection issues or have trouble strengthening the new ligament enough to get back to your prior strength.

    Here is a little more information about his injury.

    That should have prepped him well for a future partnership with Moody Maria...have her move up to Canada -and we get to free her in the process, too !

    For me, this is sad news.

    They always looked like they were "almost" reaching some grand potential, but never fully realized. When they were on, they were lovely together.

    In the write-ups on his surgery back in October, it was mentioned that he has a previously-undiagnosed degenerative bone condition that caused the bone chip to break off in his knee.

    Even if he can rehab the current injury, more jumping might put him at risk for further problems. They have already achieved world bronze, that's something to be very proud of. Hope he protects his health at this point.

    I'm just so unbelievably shocked- they didn't seem to dislike each other. Quite the contrary. I just woke up and feel like I'm dreaming- not the news I was wanting to hear. I'm so sad.. I hope Jessica and Bryce are okay and I hope they remain friends. I wonder what they're going to do next?

    I agree, at times they had such great potential and then things would go south so quickly. They had some really beautiful programs and early on in their partnership a great connection.

    I agree. But they can be proud of what they achieved, nonetheless.
