Jason Botchford article on Salo's injury:
Finishing up his first face-to-face with the media since suffering what was an embarrassing, and devastating, injury, Sami Salo looked down at his walking boot, which runs up to his knee, and smiled slyly.
"Got to run," he said, and then cooly made his exit from Rogers Arena.
At least he hasn't hurt his sense of humour.
You can take his ribs, his shoulder, his groin, his testicle, his rear end, and his Achilles tendon. But you can't take his spirit. That, he has in spades. Good thing, because he'll need it all.
Of his estimated 40 career injuries, none is more serious than the Achilles rupture he suffered July 22 playing an "oldies vs. young guys" game of floorball, a no-contact sport requiring, of all things, a Wiffle ball.
"It was like somebody shooting me with a shotgun when it was torn," Salo said.
