SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon was back at work Tuesday, only four days after breaking his hip playing hockey.

"Two guys went into the corner. Once came out — and it wasn't me," he quipped to the County Council, a pair of crutches at his side.

The mayor was participating in a 6 a.m. drop-in hockey session at the Sports Complex ice sheet on Guardsman Way, something he does regularly on Friday mornings. He was taken to the hospital after falling on the ice.
