According to a report, Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was forced to leave a Czech League game with a groin injury.

Roman Jedlick, reporter and play-by-play announcer in the Czech League, posted on his twitter account that Rask completed the first period of a game for Plzen but did not return to the ice for the second period.

Jedlick later identified the injury as a groin problem.

The 25-year-old Rask suffered the same injury on Mar. 3 while attempting to make a save against New York Islanders forward Matt Martin. Rask left the arena on crutches and missed the final 19 games of the season.

Rask appeared in 23 games for the Bruins last year and compiled an 11-8-3 record and a 2.05 goals against average before suffering his season-ending injury.

The Savonlinna, Finland native signed with Plzen of the Czech Extraliga on September 25.
