Former Golden Gopher will miss Olympics
Paul Martin, a New Jersey Devils player and Golden Gophers alum, will miss out on the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver due to injury. Martin was hurt during a game against Pittsburgh in October, and was on the road to recovering before the Olympics began, but now needs surgery when his fracture didn't completely heal. Paul Martin will be in a cast for the next two weeks but the US plays Switzerland beginning February 16th. This is really difficult for Martin, since it would have been his first Olympic game. I send my prayers to Martin and maybe we'll get to see him the next time around!
