The Arizona Coyotes star defenseman had a brush with horror this summer as a creature long thought mythical rose with the moon and struck the unsuspecting defenseman where it hurts - the hand.
In a thinly veiled attempt to perpetuate the myth that werewolves are not real, other news outlets are reporting that OEL was mauled by the family dog - a story Ekman-Larsson himself is buying into.
But we know the truth.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm fine. This happened earlier in the summer, and sadly we had to put our dog down. I got four stitches that are healing up nicely. Thanks @sportexpressen for giving me something to do today. https://t.co/JQY5HxJGb0
