GRAPHIC WARNING: AHLer’s face left mangled by slap shot

- April 2nd, 2014

Was it worth the assist?

Grand Rapids Griffins winger Mitch Callahan ate puck Wednesday night in a 6-1 win over the visiting Iowa Wild.

Look away NOW if squeamish – Callahan tweeted a photo of himself shortly after the incident.

It looked like he put a block of bottle rockets in his mouth, lit a fuse and clinched his jaw.

 

We told you to look away …

After the 22-year-old AHLer, who has appeared once this year for the Detroit Red Wings, took a teammate’s slap shot off the teeth, he dropped to the ice, spit up some blood and later looked for his own pearly whites .

“Mitch Callahan of @griffinshockey takes a puck to chops and lost a few teeth,” Grand Rapids Press sports coordinator Pete Wllner tweeted. “Teammates helping to look for them on the ice. Hockey, man.”

    Yup… Faceshields are DEFINITELY a BAD idea. This is much preferable!
    Oh and fighting is always a good idea in any sport really. It should be allowed in Football, soccer and table tennis too!

    As if a visor would prevent a deflection or this from happening….and if you want to watch full visor hockey I think they are 10 years old…..

    Right because fighting has a lot to do with this.
