For crying out loud, just put a damn band aid on it and...

*clicks article*

HOLY SHIAT!!!

On the upside, at least the scar will distract from his bald ass head when he's bar hopping with the team.

A Bruins fan would call that a fake use of a stretcher. Don Cherry would agree with them.

Thirty-one European soccer players saw that picture and collapsed clutching their knees.

Only about a 0.5 Wade on the US scale and 0.2 Malarchuks on the SI measurement scale of Horrific Sports Injuries.

(Seriously, in hockey injuries this is still not as bad as Malarchuk.  When your jugular vein and carotid artery get sliced on ice and you're only around because your coach stuck his thumb in the wound to block off the offending blood vessels...yeah, you get your own unit of measurement of Horrific Sports Injury.

(And of note...Malarchuk is not the only guy to have had a 1 Malarchuk sports injury in hockey.  Just sayin'.)

For a cut that wide and deep, I'm surprised there isn't more blood.

Richard Zednik fist bumps.

Fun fact: both happened in Buffalo.

Yep, and when they tell you that if the ambulance and crew had been on the other end of the ice instead of your end, you'd be dead, you officially have a badass sports injury.

I seem to recall a story that with the Malarchuk injury (or perhaps it was the Zednik injury) the on-call surgeon for the local hospital was at the game and when he saw the incident, immediately left the arena and headed to the hospital. As the story goes, he ended up performing the emergency surgury.

Don't know if that story is true, though.

I fully expected "it's just a flesh wound" to be an actual quote.
