Pitkanen Injury Questioned

from the Calgary Herald,

Finnish defenceman Joni Pitkanen pulled out of the IIHF world hockey championship with a knee injury, but he wasn’t getting a lot of sympathy from head coach Doug Sheddon.

“I wouldn’t put a gun to anyone’s head to play for their country,” said Sheddon, who is convinced the injury wasn’t all that serious.

“The commitment has to be better and I didn’t see a whole lot of commitment from him,” Sheddon said.
