Rumor Denied: Comrie Out At Least 1 Game

Mike ComrieI don’t know how this rumor got started, but it was posted on two separate message boards today. It basically said that Mike Comrie would be missing the remainder of the season due to a hip injury requiring surgery.

This rumor is not entirely true.

From what I gathered, Mike Comrie does have an injury to the hip and will indeed miss the game tomorrow – what happens after that depends on how fast whatever the injury is heals. As a hockey player, I can give my personal opinion on a hip injury, when they are minor. As I type this, I am nursing a hip pointer suffered tonight in my own game. If I had a game in the next night or so (I have a playoff game Sunday), I would likely sit out depending on how aggravating it is because it makes it harder to skate with such a nagging injury.

Also just wanted to throw some kudos to Isleschick at Islandermania, she actually confirmed the hip injury first.

  1. I know he has an arm injury that’s rather old, I didn’t figure he may have a hip pointer though. He does get hit often enough to get a hip injury. Heck, I hurt MY hip tonight and it was a guy on my own team that ran into me.

    I had the puck, he didn’t get out of my way.

  2. I spoke with someone who works for the islanders yesterday and while we did discuss a bunch of things i’m pretty sure if i remember correctly he mentioned comrie might be out for the season. it was only in passing but i do vaguely remember that being part of the conversation.
