Avs’ Ryan O’Byrne Takes A Taylor Hall Skate To The Face (Video)

Here is more evidence of why hockey players may be some of the toughest athletes in the world.

During last night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Avalanche, players from both teams got tangled up behind the Avs’ goal, causing Taylor Hall’s skate to come up and slice Ryan O’Byrne in the face.  And in true hockey player fashion, the Avalanche defenseman not only stayed on his feet, but finished off his shift before heading to the dressing room for repairs.  He was eventually taken to the hospital for stitches, but is expected to be fine.

Proof of why hockey players are the toughest athletes in the world can be seen in the video below.
