Norwegian hockey player Kristian Forsberg took a skate to the face during a 4-0 loss to Sweden. The skate came up and caught him right under the visor after Sweden’s Joel Lundqvist tripped over another player and his leg went up into the air.
Forsberg rather casually, especially for the amount of blood gushing from his face, skated over to the bench for medical attention. That can’t be a great reason to have to leave a game.
But just like you would expect from a hockey player, he got stitched up and returned to action later in the game.
