Video: Canucks' Sami Salo takes a Duncan Keith slapshot to the groin

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Vancouver Canucks' Game 5 win is most likely little consolation to defenseman Sami Salo, who was forced to leave the game after taking a slapshot from the Blackhawks' Duncan Keith to the groin.

The Canucks offered no report on the extent of his injury, although some outlets reported that he had suffered a ruptured testicle. That, apparently, is erroneous, according to Sun-Times' Blackhawks reporter Adam Jahns.

Salo was rushed to the hospital after a prolonged period where he was unable to get up on the ice.

Coach Alain Vigneault promised a more thorough update today, although the prevailing thought is that he won't be in the rotation for Tuesday night's Game 6 in Vancouver.

If it's any consolation to Salo, 1,183 people currently "like" a Facebook group called "Sami Salo's Ruptured Testicle."
