Update: Leafs’ Lupul injures groin

Monday started off pretty poorly for the Toronto Maple Leafs, as they fell behind 4-0 less than seven minutes into the second period of tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Now there’s concern as Joffrey Lupul is injured.

Update: Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said that Lupul has a groin injury. No word yet on how severe it is.

To give you a mere taste of his bad injury luck, just look at the ailments he’s dealt with in this calendar year alone:

  • Missed 25 games with a forearm injury.
  • Suspended two games in March (not an injury, but still more missed time).
  • He missed five games late last season with a concussion, too.
  • Lupul missed two contests last month with a bruised foot.

So, yeah, this must really be getting old for Lupul. Stay tuned for more.
