Either way it make's me cringe just cause its so close to the neck.
Shes lucky she didn't get her throat slit.

True story...like that goalie a couple years ago

i cant watch it....getting my throat slit is #3 of worst ways to die in my book
Holy crap to the last goalie. I would never want my throat slashed.
Good God... So the goalie did he come out okay? Anyone have the story on that?
welcome to 2007
the goalie returned three months later
there have been a couple of hockey skate blades to the neck/head over the years.
well with a sport that has metal sharpened like they are, its bound to happen sooner or later.
yeah, this was from the torino olympics i think...
If I remember correctly we had a guy on the Badgers accidently skate over his own had a couple of years ago and missed a month or two. I am still amazed you don't see more skates/pucks to the head in Hockey at the pro level. I am also amazed they don't wear a full face mask either.
They do...for a month after they come back from a puck to the head. Stephan Robidas (dallas stars) has had 2 to the face and still takes off the cage once he gets the doctors ok.
Having played both ways, it's such an advantage not wearing a full mask. I've worn a cage and clear plastic and it's still A LOT easier to see without a mask on.
