Minnesota Wild center Matt Cullen left last night’s 3-2 win against Phoenix after the second period with a re-occuring groin injury.
Cullen, who has 19 points in 27 games, was a game-time decision coming in.
Cullen said he isn’t sure when he will be on the ice again. He will be evaluated today, and they will make a decision based on how it feels Saturday.
This could take awhile. Groin injuries are tricky for any athlete, especially for a pro hockey player.
We’re not sure how severe it is, so Cullen could be back soon. Chances are the team will not want to rush him back and risk further injury.
