I'm not making this up.

Dustin Penner is out with a pancake-eating injury. (He hurt his back while eating eating pancakes.)

Here's the actual quote from Penner himself:

ďApparently itís one of those mysterious things, where you can throw it out (from) sneezing. I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made. Itís just like it [the pain] wraps around you and squeezes. Ö So it was disappointing. Hopefully itís just an isolated incident, and not something thatís going to become chronic.Ē

If I were Penner, I would have come up with a better story. I'm not disputing what took place, but with his reputation as a lumbering, sometimes out of shape player, he would have been better off making up a hockey playing (or practicing) excuse for his injury.

Maybe the Kings will put a clause in his contract about eating pancakes. Most players are not allowed to engage in high-risk activities like skydiving or bungee-jumping, but for Penner, they may want to consider expanding it to include flapjack eating expenditures, etc.
