Bent freehub?

Recently I got hit squarely in the middle of my cogs. Got the support arm for the rack on first look but now I notice a thumping sound from the rear wheel. Pulled of the rear and one side of the axle, the cog side, spins out of round (off center of axis). Suggestions, advice, opinions?

Sounds like a broken axle to me.

Broken or bend. If I had the right tools I have no problem tearing it down and taking a look. Looks a job for my ABS. Thanks.
