Blackhawks’ Sami Lepisto takes puck to the leg, has a horrendous bruise (Picture)

What this picture tells me is that all the padding a hockey player wears on their legs literally prevents them from shattering a knee. A lot of people think taking a slap shot off the leg during a hockey game doesn’t hurt because of the padding, but I’m pretty sure the photo above contradicts that line of thinking. Blackhawks defenseman Sami Lepisto took a puck to the inside of the knee in during a recent playoff game against the Coyotes. The result was a bruise across his entire leg.

This might not look quite as nasty as other hockey injuries like this one or this one, but I’m sure it hurts just as much — if not more. Even further evidence of how tough some of these dudes are.
