This strain was a re aggravation of an older knee injury that happened earlier in the year but had crippled fox is ability to play at a high level. Mollie Walker of the New York Post stated that it was not a tear according to her source.
«To say it was a tear would be inaccurate, according to a source,» Walker reported.

During Game 4 of round one against the Washington Capitals, Fox took a knee-on-knee collision with Nick Jensen Which caused him pain and discomfort and forced to leave the game for a short period of time. He was able to return to finish the game, but he had not looked the same since.
Fox did not score any goals in the playoffs and only had eight assists through 16 games and it was clear that he was not himself as he is usually an intense competitor and able to play at a high level at all times.
«Especially for me, I'm relied on to produce and you want to get a bit more production, obviously would've loved to get some goals, a few more assists, maybe,» Fox said on breakup day. «For me, you want to have a bit more production and be that difference, especially in games that are so tight.»

At the season over fox will now have a chance to let his knee heal and be ready for next season as the Rangers prepare for changes throughout the summer and be ready for training camp in September.
