Worst Hockey Injuries of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Clint Malarchuk - 1989

Malarchuk wasn't a stud on the ice, but he remains a legend for surviving this injury. The army veteran who happened to be the trainer really saved him. - Canuck101

I read the title of the list and this was the first one that came to mind. Still one of the most gruesome things Ive seen in sports. - VADERtheIMPALER

Yeah, this would really hurt. Tough one between Masterson and Malarchuk.

His throat was slit by a skate. - booklover1

2Bill Masterson - 1968

Masterson goes down as a legend. Not only did he make helmets mandatory, but he had a trophy named after him. Masterson will forever be known as someone who loved the sport of hockey. - Canuck101

I feel so bad for this guy! Poor poor him I think it's the worst! Sigh.

Hit his head of the ice and died. - booklover1

The Contenders

His heel was shattered so much that media accounts at the time included the assessments of various orthopedists who claimed that its like was seen only among construction workers who'd endured significant falls... from platforms and highrises! - booklover1
