Jesus. Did someone get the license plate of the truck that hit him?

I read that as 'Joni Mitchell' at first,

At first glance, I read that as Joni Mitchell and thought isn't she a little old to be playing hockey ?

John Mitchell looks a bit blue.

Been a while since there was a good Pavano dig on Fark.

Wear a farking face mask idiot.

Watching the Sharks vs Avs game right now, and he looks worse today. That shield ain't hiding nuthin...

Guy from my hometown in the AHL for the Norfolk Admirals is also named John Mitchell. Imagine if for some reason they end up on the same team/play against each other what the confusion would be

\highly unlikely

I know, it's not manly to wear face protection in hockey.

Well he was a Leaf...
Injuries notwithstanding, sounds like he's playing well, good for him.

Farking OW! It hurts just looking at that pic.

You already have a similar problem when the Milwaukee Admirals come to town, no?

Meanwhile, I'd like an investigation launched into how referees Tim Peel and Francois St. Laurent have a farking job in the NHL. I swear they're either massively incompetent or available to the highest bidder. They make NBA refs look good.

That picture and the linked pics to the skate to the forehead and skate to the upper lip should be copied and shown to every diving pansy in soccer. They would probably pass out just looking at them.

10 farking stitches to the forehead and then goes back and scores a goal in a game. Mitchell is a farking machine.

But nooo, face masks actually make the game more dangerous because people get careless with their stick!

If the NHL wanted to curb fighting all they would need to do is mandate cages. Who's gonna punch someone with a cage?

Fights happen in the NFL and they wear facemasks. They don't happen nearly as often in the NFL because the penalties for fighting are magnitudes more severe (ejections, fines, and suspensions) than they are in hockey. Wearing a full cage won't curb fighting, it just means that the throat and soft bits between the pants and shoulder pads become more lucrative targets.

Or they could just drop the helmets before they fight. It already happens on occasion.

I wouldn't object to seeing cages mandated in the NHL, if only because my balls shrivel up in horror every time someone gets hit in the face with a puck. Then they come out the next period and keep playing to remind me that they're inhumanly badass. The visibility argument is pretty much crap, after you wear one for a while your eyes start to filter out the bars.

He DOES wear one. If you had half a brain, you would see that he was wearing one when he received his injuries.

But better that you look like a biatch. Good on you!

i made the mistake of clicking the other links to see more injuries.

it was like a car wreck, i couldn't look away even though my stomach was turning.

and i kept clicking. UGH.
