Hockey is a dangerous game.
We doubt you all need a reminder of that, but sometimes there’s an injury that just leaves you completely stunned and disgusted and stunningly disgusted.
A Redditor named “Yobay” published a few photos on Wednesday of his hockey injury. It was a knee injury. A pretty bad one.
“[I] was cutting to the net from the boards, defenseman took me out into the goalie, the goalie skate (which has corners) grabbed the side of my knee and the pressure of me falling into him with speed pushed my shin pad up and the skate sliced through.
“Ended with all 3 of us in the net and the net off into the boards.
“I didn't know it was bad until I was helped off the ice and felt something weird, pulled my sock down and revealed this horror show.”
We’re not going to publish them here, outside of the edited version up top, because we don’t want you scrolling to something just repulsive by accident. (It’s bad enough we publish Oilers box scores.)
Seriously ... the knee cap is under the mess, right? It didn't, like, fall out?
That out of the way, who’s down for a game of shinny? Anyone? Why are you all running away covering your mouths like that?
