Tim Thomas Falls On His Rear, Still Makes Incredible Breakaway Save (GIFs)
Canadiens Forward Dale Weise Nearly Got His Face Sliced Off on Saturday (Gruesome Pic)
Hockey yields a lot of gruesome injuries, and most of them are the result of frozen pieces of rubber hitting guys in the face at speeds of up to 100 mph. However, the most gruesome hockey injuries always involve skates.
Fortunately, such injuries are surprisingly rare. Every couple of years we get a really nasty one, such as the gash sustained by minor league hockey player Sebastien Corcelles back in December. And once every couple of decades you get a case like that of Clint Malarchuk. But in general we don’t see as many nasty skate lacerations as one might expect.
Of course, none of that is of any comfort to the Montreal Canadiens’ Dale Weise right now. On Saturday night against the Maple Leafs, Weise got slashed by the skate of Nazem Kadri right across his upper lip.
As you’ve probably guessed, the result is not for the squeamish. Thus, to make sure nobody sees the day-after pic without being fully prepared, I’ll stall with this pic of Weise down on the ice:
And now, if you’re ready, you can take a look at the pic of Weise the next day, courtesy of teammate George Parros:
Yep, that’s nasty.
