Red Wings prospect Mitch Callahan took a puck to the mouth and this happened

Mitch-Callahan-puck-to-face

Detroit Red Wings prospect Mitch Callahan, who currently plays for the Grand Rapids Griffins, showed everyone on Wednesday night that he is not afraid to take a hit. And by that we mean Callahan is a true hockey player who can eat a puck and live to joke about it on social media.

If you are squeamish, we don’t recommend clicking after the jump. Like most other players who have fought a puck, Callahan lost. Proceed if you dare.

Soccer player saves opponent’s life after he gets knocked unconscious (Video)

A Ukrainian soccer game nearly ended in tragedy on Sunday when a player was knocked unconscious by a flying knee. Fortunately, an opponent helped save his life on the field.

Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk goalkeeper Denis Boyko jumped up to catch a ball in the 25th minute and collided with Dynamo Kiev captain Oleg Gusev. Boyko’s knee hit Gusev directly in the head in one of the nastiest collisions you will ever see. Gusev was immediately knocked unconscious and fell to the ground.

In addition to being knocked out, Gusev also swallowed his tongue. Realizing what had happened, Dnipro midfielder Jaba Kankava immediately rushed over, rolled Gusev onto his back and reached into his mouth to free his airway.

Jason Fuchs loses part of finger after being hit by puck during game (Video)

jason-fuchs-fingerJason Fuchs’ first season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League will surely be one he’ll never forget because of what happened Saturday night.

The Rouyn-Noranda Huskies forward was hit in the hand by a shot during the third period of the team’s playoff game, resulting in Fuchs losing a portion of his finger. The detached parts were found in the 18-year-old’s glove and were able to be stitched.

Thankfully, Fuchs was able to accompany his teammates after the game, but there were obviously worrisome moments immediately after the moment.

“He shouted. No one knew what to do,” Rouyn-Noranda coach Gilles Bouchard said to TVA Sports after the game, according to CBSSports.com. “We were looking for pieces of his finger.”

In 57 games this season, Fuchs scored 14 goals and dished out 31 assists.

Cody Ceci bloodied after taking puck to the head (GIF)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber has one of the hardest slapshots in the NHL. Ottawa Senators defenseman Cody Ceci found that out in the worst way possible on Monday night.

Ceci and the Senators were trying to kill off a Nashville power play when Weber fired the puck toward the net. It caught Ceci in the side of the head and deflected off like it had just hit the goal post. He was left with a nasty gash and did not return to the game.

The injury reminded us of the one this Washington Capitals fan suffered just a few months ago while sitting in the stands. Even helmets can’t protect players from everything. Here’s hoping the 20-year-old has a full and speedy recovery.

Dale Weise took a skate to the face and ended up with this nasty cut

Dale Weise face

Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise took a skate to the face during Saturday night’s 4-3 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Being the true, tough hockey player that he is, Weise did not let the bloody cut keep him out of the game long. He received stitches and returned to the game. But he ended up with one nasty, jagged cut by his lip. Teammate George Parros tweeted this picture of how it looked.

Anthony Munoz’s disgusting finger is back to haunt us

Anthony-Munoz-finger

Concussions may be some of the most dangerous injuries a football player can sustain, but they are not the only battle wounds that stick with you for life. Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Anthony Munoz reminds us of that every year when the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremonies take place.

We have seen players suffer some terrifying finger injuries while playing, but those are usually fixed by team doctors. Munoz, an 11-time Pro Bowler, last played in the NFL in 1992 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998. Yet, it still looks like he just got stepped on by a defensive lineman five minutes ago. That can’t be fun.

NaVorro Bowman suffers nasty leg injury (GIF)

NaVorro-Bowman-leg-injurySan Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman suffered a gruesome leg injury on a crucial play during the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse caught a pass at around the 2-yard line and fumbled. Bowman clearly recovered the fumble, but someone was able to wrestle it away from him under the pile.

Bowman was likely in a lot of pain, which led to a Seahawks player being able to tear the ball out of his arm. Fortunately for San Francisco, the Seahawks went for it on fourth down and Marshawn Lynch fumbled on the very next play.

Recovery of a loose ball in the field of play is not reviewable. If the play occurred in the end zone, the officials would have been able to look at it again and would have realized Bowman had possession.
