Hockey is a dangerous sport, even for those on the bench. Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb was reminded of that on Wednesday night.
McNabb was taken to the locker room after taking a deflected puck to the mouth while on the bench. It sounded like he would just need a few stitches.
You have to keep your head on a swivel at all times during a hockey game. Because sometimes you just might take a puck to the face.
The Golden Knights ended up winning the game, beating the Islanders 3-2. A win should help ease the pain of a puck to the mouth, right?
