Chalk this one up to Fate

In what is probably the freakiest accident I have ever read about, the Blues Erik Johnson is going to be out for the season after tearing two ligaments in his knee. This occured while riding a golf cart during a team sponsored tournament. Apparently, Johnson got his foot stuck between the accelerator and the brake and somehow twisted his knee.

In all my years playing golf myself, I still can't fathom how Johnson did this. Twisting your knee getting out of a golf cart is one of the oddest things ever and for it to happen to basically the face of the Blues means that the Blues are bound to have another disappointing season. Their blue line is not very deep as it is with only Erik Brewer, Jay McKee, and Barret Jackman being the veterans on that blue line.
