Worst Hockey Injuries of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Clint 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

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
