Hockey players man...
Our sport is a dangerous one, as vulcanized rubber is constantly flying around at ridiculous speeds. As the game gets faster and faster, the hazard of players being struck by pucks in vulnerable areas (namely the face) appears to be growing with it.
Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron
was the NHL's latest victim when he was struck by a deflected one-timer from teammate David Pastrnak

The Bruins were defending a two-goal lead late in the third, and the captain led from the front (as he always does), as the Bruins held on to defeat the Islanders 4-1.
The genuine concern of Islanders center Casey Cizikas
was noteworthy as well. Patrice Bergeron
's respect around the NHL is second-to-none, and that just shows it.
PATRICE BERGERON IS A FIRST-BALLOT HALL OF FAMER. TRUE OR FALSE.
