Have you ever had a tough first day on the job? You know the story, you show up to you new employer and everything that can go wrong just does. Well cheer up my friends (especially my male friends) because your first day on the job story can’t be worse than Denis Grebeshkov’s. I was persusing some hockey links this morning when I came across some news about the former Edmonton Oilers debut for the Nashville Predators last week.
Denis Grebeshkov brought his puck-moving flare to Nashville last week. Unfortunately, the Edmonton Oilers’ injury bug also followed him to the Predators. The former Oilers defenceman got hit in the groin with a shot during the Predators’ 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. The blue-liner reportedly needed emergency surgery on one of his testicles after the game.
It’s not that often that you can look in the daily transaction wire and find a player’s name listed on the injury reserve due to a shattered testicle. Kind of makes eating in the lunch room by yourself not a bad first day at work after all.
