Denis Grebeshkov Out Several Weeks After Testicle Surgery

grebeshkovLife in Nashville couldn’t have started off any worse for Denis Grebeshkov.  Less than a week after being traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the Predators, the newly acquired defenseman took a shot to the groin during a game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Unfortunately, that act of bravery pretty much turned his “meat and potatoes” into “minced meat and mashed potatoes.”

The injury was initially listed as a lower-body injury and was expected to keep Grebeshkov out 1-2 weeks, but now reports are indicating that the 26-year-old required surgery on his testicles and will miss several weeks.  The Predators should expect to have him back in time for the playoffs, if they happen to make it.

Luckily for Grebeshkov, if he is looking for a replacement he may be able to find one on Craigslist.  It all depends on the price he is willing to pay.
