Well this is disgusting. Early in the second period in Chicago Friday night, Islanders captain John Tavares got hit in the face trying to dig out a puck along the boards and must have knocked a tooth loose. When he eventually made his way to the bench, he just yanked that sucker out. You can actually see it tumble into his hand. Puke.

Tavares didn't miss a shift, but the Islanders lost 3-2, to the Blackhawks.
