Worst Hockey Injuries of All Time
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.
I read the title of the list and this was the first one that came to mind. Still one of the most gruesome things I've seen in sports.
Awful injury. Duplicated 20 years later when Richard Zednik suffered neck laceration in Buffalo.
Yeah, this would really hurt. Tough one between Masterson and Malarchuk.
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.
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.
He almost died, and it ended his career.
Hit in the throat by a hockey puck.
Impaled himself on the metal post at the center of the net.
Two words that should never be together. "Shattered Testicle". He blocked a life changing slap shot in his groin area.
Crashed into the end boards head first.
Suffered a major concussion that would be a part of his career ending early.
I'll never forget seeing the ice turn red from the blood coming from his eye
He suffered a multiple fracture broken leg and died as a result of complications.
He almost died. Chara sucks.
That injury literally ended his career. Even worse: He sadly died 4 hours later.
Like Malarchuk, he was cut by a skate.
Matt Cooke hit him hard
Hit in the eye by a stick.
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!
Tendon severed during team practice ended his career.
Suffered a concussion, ended his career.
He collapsed and died on the bench when he was with the Stars, but was revived. He got real lucky, but it's good he was revived.
