Ryan Reaves takes tooth out on bench after hard hit (Video)
Ryan Reaves of the St. Louis Blues ended Sunday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks with one less tooth in his mouth than he started with.
Reaves took a big hit along the boards from Brent Seabrook that resulted in the winger’s head getting smashed against the glass. It also loosened one of Reaves’ teeth. While later on the bench, Reaves did what you would expect any hockey player to do given the circumstances. He pulled it out so he could continue his evening without the distraction of a loose tooth in his mouth.
So far this season, Reaves has played in a career-high 77 games and has recorded six goals and six assists. He has also confirmed what we’ve known for years, hockey players won’t let much stop them from getting back on the ice.
