Rask suffers groin injury in Czech Republic
TheFourthPeriod.com

Czech League reporter and play-by-play announcer Roman Jedlicka has revealed via his Twitter account that Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has sustained a groin injury.

Rask, 25, who signed with Plzen of the Czech Extraliga on Sept. 25, reportedly completed the first period of a game, but did not return to the ice for the second period.

However, according to the Providence Journal, Rask told Czech media following the game that this injury is not serious.

"I slightly pulled my groin, it is not serious. I had groin problems last year so I took a little rest just for precaution," Rask said.

The young netminder suffered a similar injury back in March in a game against the New York Islanders. He missed the final 19 games of the season due to the lower-body injury.

In 23 games with the Bruins last season, Rask registered a .929 save percentage and 2.05 goals-against average.
