Thoresen Taken To Hospital With Groin Injury

via the AP,

Flyers left wing Patrick Thoresen was taken to the hospital for tests after getting hit in the groin by a shot during Philadelphia’s 5-4 loss to Washington on Friday night.

“He’s going to the hospital to get an ultrasound done on his testicles. It’s bad enough they may have to remove one,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. “Right now, we’re not sure how serious it is, but there’s a chance he may need surgery.”

Thoresen blocked the shot with about 6 1/2 minutes left in the game, then dropped to the ice, writhing in pain. Moments later, Washington scored to tie the game 4-4.

“Obviously, I’d have liked to see a whistle,” Flyers coach John Stevens said.
