The previously undisclosed injury that Ryane Clowe has been playing through is a groin strain.
Clowe still managed to record three points in five playoff games. What's disturbing is that Clowe apparently suffered a concussion at some point during the second half of the season. It's not clear if his concussion corresponded with the time he missed in January due to a facial injury. "He'll tell you he didn't have the greatest year," Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. "There are excuses and there are reasons; I think with Clowie there were some reasons."
