The Adductor Brevis
posted Mar 27, 2006 at 10:11PM

On the Sens site the injury to Hasek is described as being to his "adductor brevis" muscle. Below are a few links that give some background.

I remember reading an article in which the team therapist talked of a large bruise that looked as if a puck had hit there. That would imply at least a Type II strain ... more likely a Type III.

I am sure you can count weeks as well as I. It looks like timing may be tight and there may not be that much time to confirm in real game-time conditions that Hasek is still the Dominator before the playoffs start.

Postscript

Well saw the footage of Hasek skating around and doing some high leg kicks. He certainly looks a lot better than last time.
