Pascal Dupuis Pulls Out His Own Tooth

You should probably go ahead and not watch this if you're squeamish. Yes, the tooth was part of a bridge, so the pain might have been minimal, but self-dentistry is never pleasant.

Update: Dupuis was mic'd up last night, and the Penguins were kind enough to send us the clip.

Pittsburgh's Pascal Dupuis took a teammate's stick to the face in last night's win over Boston, and once he got back to the bench he calmly and coolly plucked out the loose tooth and handed it to a trainer. "I tried a second one, too, but it's glued there," Dupuis told the Post-Gazette.


Hockey players are tough, but even they have their limits. Sidney Crosby, sitting nearby, said he told Dupuis, "Hurry up, you're grossing me out. Just get rid of it."
