Worst Hockey Injuries of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Clint Malarchuk - 1989

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.

Awful injury. Duplicated 20 years later when Richard Zednik suffered neck laceration in Buffalo.

His throat was slit by a skate. - booklover1
