Frightening scene in the NHL as Jordan Staal takes a skate to the face

There was a very frightening incident just a few minutes ago in the game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Washington Capitals.

Indeed, Jordan Staal took a skate to the face from Martin Fehervary and went straight to the locker room.

Since the Adam Johnson incident, I don't know if it's just that we are more sensitive to skate cuts, but it seems to be happening all too often.

Despite that, the majority of players persist in playing without neck guards, and many still play without a visor.


Let's hope Staal is okay and that the cut is not too severe.
