Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will be out for three to four weeks after partially slicing his Achilles tendon in Thursday’s game against the Lightning.

The Stars’ statement said that Seguin was hurt at the end of the game when he went to check Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman. Here’s a clip of Seguin’s last shift in the third period:

Today, Seguin tweeted a photo of his cut. You’ve been warned.

The Stars retweeted that picture to all their followers, which is an example of stellar team coverage, but a rude shock for more squeamish Dallas fans.
