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.”
