Shawn Thornton takes puck to the face, leaves then returns (Video)
Stoke up the visor debate again. Well, not really, since it was pretty much figured out last year. But it's always scary when a player who doesn't wear a visor gets hit in the head. Shawn Thornton would qualify on this.
Thornton took a puck to the head late in the first period of Florida's game against Philadelphia. The below video...
Thornton reportedly returned to the game. When a player gets hit like that and goes straight off, it's tough to know the seriousness of the situation.
Fortunately for Thornton, who is used to getting hit in the face with fists, he's OK.
