Latvian national ice hockey team and KHL‘s Dinamo Riga goaltender Edgars Masalskis is out for 3 months with a broken ankle.. And shoot, I mean how lame is that? Looks like homeboy got into a street fight last night in Old Town..
Details of the accident are still unclear, no ambulance called, no cops, none of that. Appears like Ed grabbed a cab ride to the hospital himself after 5 to 6 people have reportedly attacked and beat him to the ground. The ankle surgery is scheduled tomorrow.
Kinda unpleasant news for Dinamo Riga who are having two days off right now after a good start to a fresh KHL season. They performed well during a 14 days 8-game streak, including on the road, having won 4 games and climbed to the 2nd place in Kharlamov Division.
Masalskis was named League’s Goaltender of the Week last week, plus this Monday he proudly set a new League record of 138 minutes and 54 seconds with no goal allowed.
Get well Ed, for real.
PS: I’m out to get me some treatment myself, been battlin’ with sore throat lately.. One.
