Another hockey guy upended, another close call for a fellow player’s major arteries. Kings defenseman Derek Forbort had his ear butterflied in Monday’s 4-3 win after Wild forward Zach Parise’s skate caught him on the side of the head. Forbort’s lucky it wasn’t his neck.

Forbort returned to the game after getting patched up.
