BLOG: Fasth practices, groin injury on the mend

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers goaltender Viktor Fasth expected the worst when he felt something happen to his groin in the game against Los Angeles on October 14. Luckily for him, the MRI was much more encouraging than anyone expected it to be.

“That was really good news,” Fasth said. “I thought it would be more serious than it was. I was really glad to hear it wasn’t that bad.”

Fasth was on the ice for practice with the team for the first time since injuring his groin.

“It felt good to be on the ice today,” he said. “I’ve been skating for a couple of days here and today was the first real action with reacting and stuff but it felt good.”

There may be some recovery left to do for Fasth, who said he doesn’t know when he will return to game action.

“I don’t know. Today was the first day with real practice. I’ve been skating and doing a lot of work with the goalie coach and the trainers here. But I hope to be back soon.”
