3 BLIND MICE ..3 Leaf players only 3 eyes..

Future's bright, but he has to wear shades 1/22/04
By ROBIN SHORT, Telegram Sports Editor

With his right eye swollen and a laceration underneath the eye, St. John's Maple Leafs' forward Harold Druken watches his teammates practise at Mile One Stadium Wednesday.

He has to undergo further testing this week, but it seems St. John’s Maple Leafs centre Harold Druken has escaped serious eye injury after catching an errant stick in an AHL game Friday in Milwaukee.
Druken was caught by Ray Schultz’s stick in the 4-3 St. John’s win. He was seen by eye specialist Dr. Rob Devenyi in Toronto Monday and will visit a second specialist in St. John’s this week.

“It was swollen all week, but now it’s starting to feel a little better,” said Druken, sporting dark sunglasses covering up a four-stitch cut at the side of his right eye.

“The doctor said there’s nothing wrong with the retina as far as he can see. He couldn’t see the whole retina, so I have to see a specialist down here this week.”

Eye injuries and the Leafs — St. John’s or Toronto — disturbingly seem to go hand in hand these days. Toronto’s Owen Nolan has been out since being clipped Jan. 3. Tuesday night, three Leafs — Darcy Tucker, Matt Stajan and Tie Domi — took sticks in the face against the Islanders. Tucker had retina surgery on his left eye and he’s out at least two weeks.

Oh my dear god.

First Berard, then Nolan, Tucker follows, now Druken, the players must like the local eye-specialist a lot.

Don't forget Mark Deyell. What's with eye injuries and Toronto anyway? This is so horrible.

Now your digging in the acrhives there..

Didn't Dale Rolfe of the Rangers damage Philly Dman Barry Ashbee eye in a Stick incident.????and later Ashbee died of Lukemia...talk about a string of bad luck there ...
