Maple Leafs coach get his mumps shot as team tries to avoid widespread outbreak @NHLdotcom

TORONTO - Leafs coach Randy Carlyle has joined the rest of his team in getting his mumps shot.

"Well I just got my shot today," Carlyle said Sunday prior to a game against the Los Angeles Kings. "They dragged me in. I was the last one.

"I thought that I had it 58 years ago so I didn't think I'd need another one but I guess there's a new strain out that they better look after us. We're taking every precaution that's available to us and, as I said, the inoculation has been offered to all of our players."

Penguins star Sidney Crosby is the latest NHL player to be diagnosed with mumps.

The NHL is dealing with a widespread outbreak of the virus, with players from Anaheim, Minnesota, the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils among those affected.
