Michael Del Zotto Picks Up Teammates’ Teeth After He Takes Shot To The Face (VIDEO)
When you hear the saying, “He’s fine, he’s a hockey player,” this is one of those situations they are talking about.
Vancouver Canucks defenseman Michael Del Zotto didn’t want his teammate Chris Tanev to lose out on valuable teeth after they were knocked out of his mouth by a deflected shot, so he skated over and retrieved his teeth off the ice for him.

Here’ the moment Tanev knew he would need extensive dental work.
As you can see, Tanez quickly exited the game and was surprisingly questionable to return.
