Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask [1] suffered a groin injury playing for HC Plzen of the Czech Extraliga Tuesday. According to a tweet from Czech play-by-play announcer Roman Jedlicka [2], Rask left the game after the first period.

Rask had suffered an abdomen strain/groin strain last season, and he didn’t play again after sustaining the injury on March 3 against the Islanders.

Said Rask to a Czech TV station following the game Tuesday: “I slightly pulled my groin. It is not serious. I had groin problems last year so i took little rest just for precaution.”

Rask’s injury is the first known injury suffered by a Bruins player playing overseas during the NHL [3] lockout.
