(my response) Ice hockey is a very dangerous game. It is one of the most physical games around. Every shift you have people trying to take you off of the puck via stick check, slash or body check. All of this is taking place while the players are skating on blades of steel at very high speeds.
Most recently, in the KHL, in a game between Yekaterinburg and Traktor Chelyabinsk, Denis Sokolov was added to this unfortunate club KHL's Denis Sokolov Gets Carotid Artery Slashed
Sokolov went down behind the net and Jan Bulis tried to leap over Sokolov, slashing his neck on the way down. Sokolov lost nearly a pint of blood, but is recovering and will miss his team's next game. Just one game! Can you believe people out there say hockey players aren't the toughest athletes around
