Well he doesn't top Johnson. Imagine ruining (partly) what's looking like a stellar career stepping out of a golf cart.

"Golf club shattered" is the worst lie in the history of the world. I guess they can't say drunken bar fight, though.

Since making his debut in the 2007-08 season, he has totaled 91 goals and 199 assists over 333 games in six seasons.


I didn't realize that his goal totals were so low. I realize he's just now entering his prime and maybe I have unrealistic expectations but I would've thought he would score a goal more than once every 3+ games.

He's been at 26 goals per 82 games over the last 3 seasons. He was low goal scoring in his first two. During that time its 35 goals per 82 pace in the playoffs.

Seems like more than a 5-6 week injury. Let's hope they rush him back too early.

Is it possible to shatter a golf club, when used in the intended way?

Only thing I could think of would be a hidden root or boulder. But, that is rare.

Either he really sucks at golf, or he was really drunk. I prefer the latter.

Are they necessarily mutually exclusive?

It probably happened at Miniature Golf. He most likely went all Happy Gilmore on the clown at one of the holes.
