Henrik missed the first day of NY Rangers training camp due to a "tender groin" as reported by the Rangers beat writers.
A moment of silence for Henrik's "tender groin".
Ok, now you can snicker and wonder how in the heck did Henrik hurt his groin and when. Henrik was at every day of the informal training camp with no physical problems. Then came the NHL media days and he was walking around fine from what I could tell from the videos (and no I did not stare at his crotch region) so the injury must have happened after the media days on film and before training camp.
Did Therese listen to Henrik's radio interview with Boomer and Carton and hear one of them mention a photo of Henrik with a hooker? (It's not a hooker BTW it's Victoria a fellow Swede.) Did Therese watch the NHL store interview where Henrik answered 'it happens' to getting distracted by hot chicks in the stands? Those are the only reasons I can think of for Henrik getting kneed in the crotch! Which is one theory I have as to what happened.
Another theory is that they were doing some pre training camp celebrating that did not go well. Henrik, you know the backseat of the Maserati is not big enough!
Can you just imagine how embarrassed Henrik had to be when he had to report to the staff doc that his groin was tender? And how did they determine it was too tender to get on ice? I can just imagine Henrik on the exam table in his underwear with Rangers staff standing around discussing how tender his groin is. I bet Henrik wanted to hide. And then the news goes out on Twitter via the Rangers writers, picked up by news sites, and now I devoted an entire post to his tender groin. Poor Henrik. I'm pretty sure Henrik hates the internet.
And I'm sure he had, at some point, to have explained what happened to cause the tender groin.
Doc: What happened? You were fine a few days ago.
Henrik: Well, uh...
Doc: Dammit Henrik, did you go off and do your pre training camp celebrating again?
Henrik: It's a routine I have, I couldn't break the routine!
Doc: I told you no Kama Sutra during the season! I'm going to have to confiscate that book from you again. Now, where to hide it from Dubi's virgin eyes...
