Gaborik held out of Tuesday Practice - will probably miss Islander game

Marian Gaborik's secret injury has held him out of Tuesday's practice and is likely to miss the Islander game on Wednesday.

The Rangers are calling it a "lower body injury". So at least Glen Sather's top notch medical staff have ruled out the upper torso.

We're also hearing that it is is not the hip or the groin - the areas that the NHL's 2nd leading scorer got operated on last year. And unlike training camp - no one has used the word "tweaked".

Gaborik himself told reporters today: "It's nothing major". So there's some comfort in that.

Let's hope Marian is right. Because if healthy - Gaborik is on a pace to get more than 60 goals this year.

The latest news is that P.A. Parenteau of the Hartford Wolfpack (the Ranger minor league team) will be joining the Ranger team shortly - presumably to replace Gaborik in the lineup against the Islanders on Wednesday night.

Anyway - regardless of what the mystery injury is - from all of us at Blueshirt Brothers - Get Well Soon!
