Matt Hendricks’ Sliced Ear Is Quite The Disgusting Sight (Pic)

Apparently Mathieu Perreault wasn’t the only teammate the Alex Ovechkin has inflicted pain on over the past week.  Matt Hendricks has also been victimized by the Capitals’ captain, as he took an Ovie shot off the ear during practice, resulting in the grotesque sight displayed in the above image.

Hendricks was on the wrong end of an Ovechkin shot during the Capitals’ off-day on Saturday, as an errant shot from the Russian sniper ricocheted off the glass, striking Hendricks on the ear.  He rushed off the ice quickly and was tended to by the Capitals training staff, along with the Penguins’ plastic surgeon.  Together, they were able to stitch the cartilage back together before eventually stitching up the rest of the ear.

Judging by the before (above) and after (below) images, I’d say they did a pretty good job.
