I know it is uncool for hockey men to wear facemasks or visors, but it seems like a really smart idea. The sport involves very long sticks, extremely sharp blades, and small pieces of frozen rubber hurtling around the rink at 100 miles per hour. Face protection in those conditions seems prudent, but who am I to tell a grown adult what to do?
Anyways, here is Zach Parise getting smashed in the face by a puck. You can even see him pick up his knocked out tooth from the ice!
