Oldie? It happened yesterday

I linked one of the videos where you can see the blood actually pour unto the ice. You don't actually see that cut though. Go to 1:15ish.

Damn that sucks. That incident is something I wouldn't consider being a hockey player, because you wouldn't expect a skate to get that high off the ice. Just when you think you only have to worry about pucks, sticks, and elbows.

they've made it safer for goalies with the throat protector thingies but yeah you never expect a skate to get that high out on the ice....evidently from what i hear is in critical care but stable in ICU. Him being able to skate back to the bench looks to have saved his life....if they had to have someone go get him i dont see it being as good an outcome...

He is alright, his cartoid was almost completely severed but was repaired with emergency surgery in Buffalo.

This is the second such incident, the first one occured in 1989. Clint Malarchuk was a goalie for the Buffalo Sabres and was crashed into by a teammate and an opposing player. Like Zdenik, he was cut across the throat by the skate of a teammate. Malarchuk was cut across the jugular.

Quote:
Malarchuk, meanwhile, had only two thoughts: He was going to die, and he had to do it the right way. "All I wanted to do was get off the ice", said Malarchuk. "My mother was watching the game on TV, and I didn't want her to see me die."
The trainer for the team was a former Vietnam medic and saved his life by reaching into his neck and pinching off the vein.

there are youtube videos of this around, it is not something I'm going to post, it is quite disturbing

That has got to be one of, if not the worst hockey injury I've ever seen.

When I played double A travel in high school a guy on my team got cut rite above his knee, bottom part of the front of his calf muscle, where when you your knee is fully bent the shin/knee pad and hockey pants don't protect you. That was fucking messy as hell. Blood everywhere. I told the silly bastard not to look at it. Rite when I told him he looked at it and he saw his tendens and shit and passed rite out. LOL!!!!

I accidently skated over my dogs foot playing pond hockey once. Damn dog didn't even bleed or cry. Straight down to the bone to.

I think the Malarchuk one was far worse than Zdenik's. That is one of the few things I have never seen on the ice. I've had a teammate come to the bench with visibly broken (bent in the wrong spot) arm, had a guy taken off on a stretcher, had a teammate blow out his knee, but never saw anyone get cut by a skate.

In my 15 years of playing I've seen only one neck injury that was a skate cut, it was not even close to this though.
