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.
I watched the video. His neck was gushing blood. It was nasty. I am so glad he lived!
Masterson goes down as a legend. Not only did he make helmets mandatory, but he also 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.
He died, key word: he *died*. How the heck does this not top it?
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 was a part of his career ending early.
Took a puck to the right eye.
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.
Face smashed into the stanchion.
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.
He got injured on October 19, 2021, during the Oilers vs. Ducks game, and he was out until December. Then he played maybe 3 games and then got injured again in January 2022, during practice or something.
He got injured again in 2022. Now hopefully he won't be out until about April or May, but they said he will be out for 1 to 2 weeks.
I remember seeing it live. He got injured in the last Oilers regular-season game of the 2018-19 season against the Flames.
Hit his head on the ice and ended his career.
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 likeness was seen only among construction workers who'd endured significant falls from platforms and high-rises.
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 really lucky, but it's good he was revived.
Fell on the ice and broke a nail.
Nearly died of a heart attack.
