Oliver Ekman-Larsson's offseason isn't going exactly as planned.
While home in his native Sweden, the Coyotes captain was bitten on the hand by a family dog and needed stitches, according to Swedish news outlet Kvälls Posten. He went to the hospital, where he received a tetanus shot and antibiotics, as well.
The incident happened in May shortly after the end of the World Championship.
Per the Swedish publication, Ekman-Larsson put the German Shepherd down after he was bitten and was quoted saying similar incidents had happened with the dog in the past and he had to be put down.
