Yakupov gets infected

30 posts in this topic

"The Edmonton Oilers are a franchise keen on keeping traditions in tact no matter how recent. You’ll note that each of the last first overall picks the franchise has had — Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, for those of you with short memories — have missed significant portions of time due to injury in their brief careers.

Enter Nail Yakupov.

The latest wunderkind to pull an Oilers jersey over his head has come down with an incredibly bizarre injury. At a training camp run by former Montreal Canadiens assistant coach and recent Montreal Canadiens fall-guy Perry Pearn, Yakupov reportedly fell off of a treadmill that was moving rather quickly.

He has contracted a leg infection as a result.

Nail Yakupov has an infection in his legs after falling off a fast-moving treadmill earlier this week.

The Edmonton Oilers’ first overall draft at the June NHL entry draft was training before Monday’s skate at Perry Pearn’s three-on-three pro conditioning camp at K of C Twin Arenas and tumbled off the treadmill. He did skate Monday, but wasn’t on the ice Tuesday or Wednesday.

There is no firm report on when Yakupov will be back on skates.

The Russian forward, who attracted a big crowd of onlookers at the camp on Wednesday only to discover he wasn’t skating, is supposed to go to a junior showcase of draft picks outside of Toronto next Tuesday. The event provides Panini America and Upper Deck — the two official trading card partners of the NHLPA and the NHL — an opportunity to photograph the young stars in their team uniforms.

This is obviously incredibly bizarre and extremely gross.

Treatment-wise, they will undoubtedly pump the bejeezus out of him with antibiotics which should clear up the infection. This is a good thing, because upon further review, leg infections sound like nasty business. According to this medical website of minimal repute, symptoms of a leg infection include:

Symptoms of a leg infection include redness, swelling, and pain. In addition, clear or bloody drainage can occur, as can itching and an increase in temperature over the infected area. If the localized leg infection is not adequately treated, a systemic infection may occur. When this happens, the patient may experience generalized weakness, fatigue, and fever."

Taylor Hall's injuries are totally self-inflicted though. Anyone who skates with their head down in today's NHL is just asking to have it be taken right off.

Hopefully he will be a bust like Mikhail Yakubov of the Hawks back in 2000. Not because I wish bad upon him, but for the Canucks sake.

Can't wait to see this kid with RNH. They are going to tear up the league for a long time.

They better take care of it, infections can spread. There was a lacrosse player that got an elbow infection that spread to his mcl and took him out for a season.

while it probably wouldn't happen to yak, they should get it under control fast

Normal people get bad cuts all the time that don't get infected. Seems as though the medical staff at this camp are kind of useless if they can't keep a wound sterile or the guy has a bum immune system.

Oilers source says Yakupov leg not infected

EDMONTON - An injury suffered by Nail Yakupov falling off a treadmill is not as serious as first reported.

According to an Oilers source, this summer’s first overall pick in the NHL draft slipped and fell off a treadmill while working out earlier this week. Yakupov, 18, scraped up his shins in the mishap, which kept him off the ice for a few days.

QMI Agency has learned Yakupov did not suffer an infection in his leg and has resumed his workouts in preparation for the upcoming season.

On Twitter, Yakupov expressed disbelief when informed of a story that he was fighting an infection, adding a later tweet: “That was amusing Wooooooooowwww!!!!!! :):):):):):):)

He’s expected to be back on the ice at Perry Pearn’s three-on-three conditioning camp at the Knights of Columbus Arena on Friday. The camp, which features a number of local-area professionals, continues next week.

Yakupov arrived in Edmonton just over a week ago after competing in the Canada, Russia Challenge hockey series to prepare for the upcoming NHL season.

He was back in the gym on Thursday.
