Pekka Rinne Groin Injury

I've read about Rinne's groin injury back in mid december, but haven't been able to find any updates since.
http://predlines.com/2012/12/12/pekk...laying-in-khl/
He hasn't played a game since December 9th, and has not been named as a starter in the KHL all star game.

Does anybody have any recent news about his injury and how serious it is?

Any responses here since the season is about to start?

Saw where Kopitar is likely to miss time for the Kings, would absolutely hate to have Pekka out, especially in a short season.

NM, Cooper just tweeted about this...

Bourque is out a couple of weeks with a Shoulder Injury

Everyone else is healthy.

Just posed the question on Twitter and immediately got a response from Josh Cooper of the Tennessean who has been talking daily with the players down at A-Game. Said Rinne is healthy and was holding out of the lineup in Minsk through the break until there was a resolution to the CBA one way or the other before returning to play.

Therefore, Rinne is healthy as far as we know...

Yep, as mentioned above, all players healthy minus Bourque.

While he's fine, this is a good time to point out how utterly screwed we are if he or Weber get hurt. If Rinne is hurt, Mason-Smith is our goalie tandem. If Weber gets hurt..

Klein-Josi
Ellis-Hannan
Blum-Gill

Either one of them go down for a long time and you could see MacKinnon in Nashville...

I agree with you sentiments. This is a very fragile team if people start to fall in a short season. It's the same story around the league with star players being injured, however I'm not sure if this team has the depth in order to not miss a beat. Here's hoping for a healthy season, knock on wood. Atleast we're getting off to a good start with Bourque being the only one missing time.


Rinne I'm not so worried about. His injury doesn't sound very serious.

I'm not saying every team wouldn't be seriously hurt, but some teams can survive, particularly in the case of a goalie. Halak/Elliot, Schenieder/Lu, Backstrom/Harding, and others are examples. For D, NYR and VAN have the depth. Very few teams do, but I think we lean on those two more than most lean on their #1D and starter.
