Dale Weise played just over eight minutes of hockey Saturday night.
He didn’t contribute a great deal to the Montreal Canadiens’ 4-3 overtime victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs — stat line: four hits, one blocked shot, minus-1 — yet managed to take home a gnarly souvenir.
Nazem Kadri’s skate whacked Weise’s face, leading to an unexpected date with the Habs’ team doctor.
As documented by teammate George Parros, via Twitter, Weise’s face needed stitches for his troubles.
Oh, did he ever need stitches:
