Hamhuis Under the Knife

Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis went under the knife today to repair a sports hernia he suffered when he sent Milan Lucic for a ride with an awesome hip check in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals vs Boston.

 Gillis on Team 1040 radio :
"Very optimistic about outcome, (the surgery was) less intrusive than the team originally thought". 

When Hamhuis didn't return for the remainder of the series, many speculated for weeks as to what the injury was. Some people were saying it was his knee, many said it was his ankle, one guy even popped into the Province 24/7 chat to tell us that a friend of a friends cousins brothers fathers mom knew Hammer and said Hammer had blown a testicle. ( yes we all got a chuckle from that one as well )  I am glad to hear it was an easy-to-fix sports hernia and I am looking forward to seeing Hammer back in the lineup come October.
