While Dustin Penner of the LA Kings was devouring said pancakes, he suffered a back injury. It is believed to be the first non-IHOP pancake-related injury in the history of the NHL.
“I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made. It’s just like it (the pain) wraps around you and squeezes. . . . So it was disappointing. Hopefully it’s just an isolated incident, and not something that’s going to become chronic.”
I love pancakes as much as the next guy, but the only reason this is a post is because of what Penner’s wife looks like. Her name: Jessica Welch. Low-level actress, apparently. Hockey fans may know her because she used to be married to Richard Zednik. In their divorce, she received $1 million. Below is a photo of Zednik and Welch. [via Hot Clicks]
