Malone has infection in leg

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Ryan Malone left the team Wednesday in Boston and returned to Pittsburgh to be treated by team doctors for an infected cut on his leg.
Anyone want to bet if it's because of dirty equipment? As they always say keep your stuff clean otherwise it could be bad news.

This has been a public service announcement .

Staph infections are becoming more of a big deal these days - definitely keep your equipment clean, and/or shower as soon as you can after hockey.

My equipment is pretty clean, I hang it up to dry afterwards along with showering afterwards. Some of the guys who leave their equipment in the trunk of their car all week, or in some damp garage all closed up.

Michael Rennberg almost had his finger amputated for the same reason, infection. He was tying his skates and cut his finger!

The bottomline is that these guys are constantly in an envirnoment with sweat and bacteria. You know that players get multiple cuts and abrasions hat could be an open door for infection.

The care of equipement and cleanliness that we see in pro locker rooms is not a luxury.

I think Malone's infection has more to do with the lady company he keeps rather than the cleanliness of his gear.

I don't think pro players actually have a problem with "dirty equipment"

Do you think the players actually clean the equipment themselves, they have equipment managers for that.

I really need to just drill a bunch of hooks into my garage wall or something to hang up my gear. I let it air out but there's not much room. This stuff scares me all the time =(

+1. And if you have any sort of scrape, cut, any kind of opening in your skin, (a few years ago, a basketball player at UCONN got a nasty staph infection that started with an ingrown hair on his leg) keep an antibiotic ointment on it and keep it covered.

MRSA is a synonym for a Staph infection. I don't know whether or not it is what Malone has, but it is growing extremely common nowadays and as has been repeated throughout this thread, you should really do your best to take proper care of your equipment.

I think cuts on your foot aren't as bad as hopefully you are wearing a clean pair of socks, unless your barefooting. Don't know how some people can play barefoot...

Definately keep it clean. I had a nasty skin lesion on my hand for about 2 years, no doctor could find out what it was, but im guessing it was from my gloves (which I was occasionally but its hard to do when youre skating 12 hours a week).

You should probably just cut the toe off. Just in case.
