Was it just the non-hockey fans that were surprised that a hockey player loses 7 teeth and comes back in the same game?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (36545points) May 28th, 2010

A San Jose player caught a puck in the mouth and had 7 teeth knocked out. He went to the dressing room for some quick repairs and then came back out to skate. Is it mainly non-hockey fans that were surprised at this? I would have been surprised if he didn’t, but I’m a hardcore hockey fan. Any thoughts? And by the way, he still can’t find four of the teeth.

No, I’m surprised. Talk about dedication! I’d be done with hockey forever.

If this was a regular season game: surprised. San Jose doesn’t ever have to worry about fighting for a playoff spot.

If this was a playoff game: not surprised. Would be surprised if he didn’t come back.

I would bet that they forgot to check the puck. For the four teeth.

As a soccer fan i am more surprised at what pussies they are (the soccer players).
They should be forced to watch a game of hockey or rugby or Australian rules before they begin their matches, so they can see what real men are.

@rebbel I hope they see your comment and check. I hadn’t thought of that. Soccer plays should be allowed into the actors award shows for all their dives.

No, I’m not surprised at all. Hockey players are tough. If a guy were to lose his arm during a game, he just might apply a bandaid and return to play.

By the way, hockey players are also amazingly humble and likeable, probably because so many of them are Canadian.

They are tough. But seven teeth – his trash talk must’ve sounded like This
