via the Toronto Maple Leafs,

After opening training camp on the Toronto Maple Leafs' injured reserve list, forward Joffrey Lupul issued the following statement:

"It is with deep regret that I will be unable to attend training camp and start the season with the Leafs due to injury. I pledge to work hard with a view to return to playing this season.

Hockey is the only life I have known. This is an extremely emotional time for me. Accordingly, I will not be making any further comment at this time."

Terrible news. He should just concentrate on his family and trying to live with that diagnosis. This is where hockey takes a back seat to this sort of thing. Life with this sort of injury does go on. I just hope he can accept it and try to enjoy the really important things in life, like family and an appreciation for life no matter how little time he has on this earth.

Death, taxes and Joffrey Lupul injuries.

He is a fragile lad.
