Astoundingly, Daniel Walcott attempted to play in the third period of the Subway Super Series. Russia's Eduard Gimatov was not so fortunate.
During the second period of what escalated into a rough-and-tumble second game between Team QMJHL and Team Russia, Gimatov got the worst of a knee-on-knee collision with Walcott, who's having a surprisingly strong season for the league-leading Blainville-Boisbriand Armada.
The 19-year-old Gimatov's leg bent in a way it was not designed to, while Walcott did a complete somersault and sailed a good 10-12 feet before landing. He came out for the warmup in the third period, but retired from the contest.
