This is the first case of mono I've seen in hockey.

I don't think I've mentioned this here before, but I have two fantasy teams on Yahoo! for the hockey season. I'm doing pretty good with both of them (I have three of the top five goal scorers in the league on one team!) but this morning I was disheartened to see that my favorite Bruin, Phil Kessel, was placed on IR. I clicked on the little post-it with the red spot to see what was up with dear Phillip.

The box popped up and said that he came down with 'Mononucleosis'. MONONUCLEOSIS? ): I do know that you never know when you can be healed of it (it's like a groin injury!) so Phil could even be out for the rest of the season with that. In most of my hockey watching career, which isn't very long honestly, I have never heard about or seen a player have mono. I'm just wondering if this is actually very rare, and players never get this during the season. I know that my dad had mono once during high school and my mom told me that he was out almost the whole year because of it. Crazy! I hope that he has a speedy recovery, because I really do like the guy even though he plays for a division rival.

I wonder how many puck bunnies he kissed in order to get it... LOL!

Ha! I would understand if it were that...the kid is either 19 or 20 years old. I bet they flock to him like birds.
