CANTLON’S CORNER: GERNANDER ISOLATED FOR MUMPS

gerry-150x130BY: Gerry Cantlon, Howlings

The NHL outbreak of the mumps has been found its way to the AHL and the Hartford Wolf Pack.

Wolf Pack head coach Ken Germander and veteran forward Joey Crabb have been isolated and are being tested for the mumps.

Gernander will not be behind the bench to coach tomorrow night’s big division contest against Syracuse at the XL Center. The tandem of Jeff Beukeboom and Pat Boller, the team’s assistant coaches will run the Pack. Gernander ran practice yesterday. His isolation began in the past 24 hours.

It would seem likely that Saturday’s game against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms will also be minus the team’s head coach and veteran forward.

“Both have been isolated and are being tested for the mumps,” the team’s long-time broadcaster and PR Director Bob Crawford told Cantlon’s Corner. “We’re following the same protocol as the Rangers.”

The Rangers have had two cases in Tanner Glass (back in the lineup) and Derrick Brassard (still out).

According to Crawford, after Glass’s diagnosis the entire organization was vaccinated as a precaution.

According to the Mayo Clinic, some people infected with the mumps virus have either no signs or symptoms or very mild ones. When signs and symptoms do develop, they usually appear about two to three weeks after exposure to the virus and may include:

Swollen, painful salivary glands on one or both sides of your face (parotitis), Fever, Headache, Weakness and fatigue, Loss of appetite, Pain while chewing or swallowing.

The primary — and best known — sign of mumps are swollen salivary glands that cause the cheeks to puff out. In fact, the term, “Mumps,” is an old expression for lumps or bumps within the cheeks.
