Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis took a stick to the face from teammate Kris Letang during his team’s 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night. You know what’s coming next.
Dupuis is a hockey player. Naturally, he didn’t miss a shift. He simply skated to the bench, took a seat, and yanked his own tooth out of his head. He might have even been going back for a second tooth, but the cameras cut away.
If the scene looked familiar, it’s probably because we saw the exact same thing from a New York Islanders player just a few weeks ago. The frightening thing is we’re only about one quarter of the way through the NHL season. Players are going to be professional dentists by the time the playoffs roll around.
