Tailing the Komets

Here's how Laplante got hurt

For the past few weeks, Sebastien Laplante has missed action because of a broken middle finger on his blocker hand. Because he hasn't actually missed any game time and because the Komets have not had to replace him on the roster, it's been a non-issue. That, and Nick Boucher is 9-0-1 over his last 10 games.

Anyway, you'll never guess how, or should I say, who, gave Laplante his bum finger. Yep, P.C. Drouin. Drouin has already put Laplante out of action twice this season, the first time on a bruised collarbone because of a high shot during a practice. When Laplante came back from that, the exact day he was supposed to start again, he caught a Drouin slap shot during the morning skate and broke the collarbone.

This time, according to Laplante, he had taken his blocker off and was adjusting his equipment during a practice when he got hit by another Drouin shot. Supposedly Drouin had not been looking and just whipped a shot on goal not realizing Laplante wasn't ready.

Thank goodness they are teammates of who knows how badly Drouin might actually hurt Laplante. LOL.

Well it looks like Sebass has been out of action a while he is fighting almost every shot and play has been sloppy at times.

It's official... P.C. Drouin is Slapshot Man! lol.


(kind of ironic, though, that someone tagged this clip with a New Jersy Devils logo. :S)
