This one seemed to fly under the radar, but Patrik Elias had an injured groin.

Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice hears from Devils GM Lou Lamoriello that Elias had minor surgery to repair the issue and will be back skating soon.

“Patrik had a little pull, so that’s been fixed,” Lamoriello said.

Lamoriello said Elias’ groin problem was on “a different side” from the one that twice required surgery – in 2005 and 2009.

At least it’s not a flare up of an old issue.

Elias had a goal and an assist in the six-game loss to the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup finals. He finished with five goals and three assists throughout this year’s playoffs.

    Patriki saw the power and speed and just overall greatness caused by what lives in SoupCanSids groin and couldnt take it anymore. He went under the knife to try to get his own soup can. All he got for his money was a tuna can shaped silicone mess. Poor Elias. S_C_A 2012.
