    Default Hockey player Richard Zednik's neck severely cut by skate blade

    Zednik hurt in Sabres' 5-3 win


    From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Richard Zednik sustained a deep gash across the neck on Sunday night's game. Zednik, who had blood gushing from his neck after being cut by a teammate's skate midway through the third period, was transported to hospital and listed in stable condition. The game was delayed for 15 minutes, and a hush fell over the crowd. Zednik was behind the play and skating into the right corner of the Sabres' zone, when teammate Olli Jokinen was upended by Sabres defenseman Brian Campbell. Jokinen fell head-first to the ice, and his right leg flew up and struck Zednik directly on the side of the neck. Clutching his neck, Zednik immediately raced to the Florida bench, leaving a long trail of blood. A Sabres trainer jumped on the ice to apply a towel across the player's neck, and Zednik was immediately escorted to the Panthers' dressing room. A hush fell over the crowd at HSBC Arena. The crowd sat in silence and players and coaches looked on in shock from the benches as crews scraped the blood from the ice. Zambonis were also driven out to clean the ice. It wasn't until the public address announcer announced Zednik being in stable condition that the crowd gave a standing ovation. The game resumed shortly after, but the final 9:56 was played with little intensity or passion.

    I am surprised this doesn't happen more often in hockey.
    I hope he recovers and all is well.

    Yeah, i saw the clip.. the guy's skate just went up into the air and looked like it bumped him, no big deal.. then he falls over and there's this big GOOSH of blood on the ice, and he gets up and skates away. Ick.

    how come the ice was cleaned off before it was determine if he was ok? what if he'd died? wouldn't that then be a crime scene of some sort?

    I can't believe player's fingers don't get unintentionally amputated from time to time, can you imagine having someone skate over your fingers?

    Not really, as no crime had been commited. More of an accident. And anyways they have so many cameras rolling during a hockey game to see every angle that I don't think it would have been necessary.

    This has happened before to Malarchuk who goaled for the Sabers. He had his jugular cut during a game and was saved by the quick thinking of the medic who stopped the bleeding by pinching the artery with his figers until they paramedics got there.

    I go to hockey games in Houston all the time... wow this stuff is insane. Last week some guys stick broke on the ice and he was skating around playing tackle hockey and the freaking goaleeeeee(sp?) dove at another player and knocked him down... an insanely violent sport... taking off their gloves and punching eachother... they sort of look like a bunch of drunks because they're on skates.

    I find the fighting in hockey to be absolutely retarded. No other sport allows it, why should this one?

    Part of the game my ass. It has nothing to do with the game. Save your energy for playing, retards.

    So are you insinuating we are retarded, violent, or both?

    Before you answer, keep in mind that retarded people can kick yer butt and not do jail time, lol.
