Leafs Question

Who was the player a few years ago that was injured because of a strange illness he got while cutting his hand doing up his skates?

definately Renberg. Thought so..

"In December, teammate Mikael Renberg suffered an even more serious infection after he cut his hand while tying his skates. The wound became infected and Mr. Renberg was taken to hospital with a 104-degree fever. Doctors discussed amputating the hand in order to save his life. Mr. Renberg said he was fortunate the team's athletic therapist got him to hospital quickly enough to avoid amputation, maybe even death. He, and some other players, now wear gloves while lacing their skates to avoid cuts or blisters."
