Nashville Predators defenceman Shea Weber has one of the nastiest slapshots in the NHL.
Just ask the Ottawa Senators.
Weber knocked Cody Ceci out of Monday night’s game at the Canadian Tire Centre after a shot by the Preds captain from the point appeared deflect into the Ottawa blueliner’s head.
The result was pretty bloody, as shown in this photo by USA Today photographer Marc DesRosiers.
What’s more, Ceci was Weber’s second victim of the night. Earlier in first period, another howitzer by Weber shook up Senators goalie Craig Anderson. The netminder needed a moment to recover and was in obvious pain after stopping the shot with his shoulder.
UPDATE: Ceci was cut behind his right ear and won’t return to the game.
#Sens d-man Cody Ceci will not return to tonight’s game after sustaining a laceration behind his right ear.
