Dinamo Riga Goaltender Assaulted on the Street, Out for Three Months

September 17, 2008 at 1:48 am Leave a comment

Egdars Masalskis, Dinamo Riga’s starting goaltender who was just named KHL Goalie of the Week was assaulted by five or six individuals on his way home from a post game dinner yesterday in Old Riga (historic downtown). Masalskis sustained serious injuries (reportedly a broken leg among other things) that will keep him out of action for at least three months.

It’s very difficult to add much to this shocking bit of news. We wish Edgars a speedy recovery and hope that the human garbage that’s responsible for this random act of violence will be found as soon as possible. Based on some reports the Latvian police have apparently obtained a video of the incident (Old Riga is riddled with security cameras). Whatever is coming to them would be well deserved.

It is unfortunate that there is a certain type of people who would gang up on a random individual and beat them to a pulp for no other reason than their own inadequacy and boredom.
