Hockey player has knee sliced open by a skate

Injuries that involve hockey skates are always difficult to look at. Those with weak stomachs usually can’t handle them. My guess is even a few people who thought their stomachs were made of steel won’t be able to look at this one.

Reddit user Yobay recently shared some photos of one of the nastiest sports injuries you will ever see. Here’s how he described it, via Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy:

“[I] was cutting to the net from the boards, defenseman took me out into the goalie, the goalie skate (which has corners) grabbed the side of my knee and the pressure of me falling into him with speed pushed my shin pad up and the skate sliced through.

“Ended with all 3 of us in the net and the net off into the boards.

“I didn’t know it was bad until I was helped off the ice and felt something weird, pulled my sock down and revealed this horror show.”

And now, for the uncensored version, you can find it at this link.

Just when we thought nothing could be worse than this skate to the face, a guy goes and almost loses his knee cap. Get well soon, Yobay.
