3. In 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.
2. On March, 1989, Buffalo Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk suffered one of the most horrifying injuries of all time. Steve Tuttle of the St. Louis Blues and the Sabre’s Uwe Krupp collided near Malarchuk’s goal and Tuttle’s skate sliced Malarchuk’s neck, slicing open his external carotid artery. With pools of blood filling virtually the entirety of the goal crease, Malarchuk somehow left the ice under his own power with the assistance of the Sabres’ team trainer. Clint Malarchuk spent only one night in the hospital, and was back on the ice with his team two weeks later.
1. On Febuary 11th , 2008 , Florida Panthers Richard Zednik linemate Olli Jokinen was being checked in the Sabres’ zone – fell forward and his skate accidentally flew up and caught the right side of Zednik’s neck. Bleeding profusely from the cut Zednik was able to skate toward his bench where he was met by the trainer and immediately ushered to the locker room. Thankfully Richar Zednik made a full recovery and is back on the ice playing still for the Florida Panthers.
