10 Things We’ve Learned Halfway 2 The Stanley Cup
Adam Burish Survives Having His Neck Cut By Skate Blade
Total Pro Sports -This is exactly the reason why all hockey players, young and old should wear neck guards. Protect yourself from serious injury and possible death.Do not be a hero. Have a look to see how close Burish from the Chicago Blackhawks came to a potentially hazardous situation.
In yesterday’s Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks, forward Adam Burish of the Blackhawks was against the boards when his teammate Ben Eager’s skate came up hitting him in the neck causing lacerations that could have ended his career or even worse his life.
Ben Eager fell over a Detroit Red Wings player and accidentally hit Burrish in the neck with his skate. Thankfully Adam Burrish was able to skate off the ice with only neck scrapes. If you don’t believe us all you have to do is listen to the tone of the commentator’s voice,
“This is terrifying, close your eyes if you don’t like it.”
This also happened to Richard Zednik of the Florida Panthers back in 2008 and luckily for him he made the quick decision to skate to his trainer on the bench, who then controlled the bleeding, while his neck was gushing. (Video after the jump ) Hockey is a dangerous sport if you don’t take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your body with the equipment approved by government standards.
take a look for yourself and see what we mean…..We warn you if you have a weak stomach please do not watch this video!
