NHL Player Gets Hurt Playing Whiffle Ball on Ice [VIDEO]

This is something a bunch of kids would do and someone would get hurt. You would think adults would have more common sense.

Just days before their season opener last week, the Pittsburgh Penguins became an Internet smash when they put on an on ice game of whiffle ball to show support for the Pittsburgh Pirates. That gesture and the few minutes of fun it brought may have been quite costly to the Pens and no one is yet certain just how costly.

Former Dallas Star James Neal, a 40-goal scorer and key member of the Penguins’ second line, played in Pittsburgh’s season opener on Oct. 3. He left the game in the first period after only 3 minutes, 49 seconds of ice time and has not played since, listed with an upper-body injury.

On Tuesday, David Todd, a radio host on ESPN 970 AM in Pittsburgh, tweeted that a source told him Neal suffered the injury in the whiffle ball game on Oct. 1, the day the Pirates got their first postseason win since 1992. Now the video below does not show James Neal getting hurt it is just the promo video the Penguins made. I wish him a speedy recovery, unless they are playing the Stars in a couple weeks.
