Mumps strikes NHL teams
NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has been hit with an outbreak of the mumps that has affected about a dozen players on four teams.
It started in Anaheim where the Ducks had three players affected. It then moved to the Minnesota Wild, who had five victims. Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers then came down with it, and the New Jersey Devils say two players also turned up sick.
The virus is very infectious and close quarters can lead to multiple victims.
