    Holy sh*t, you're right! I just watched it on YouTube. It's a lot worse, you can actually see squirting and gushing. How horrific it must have been to see that at the time it happened, when you didn't know whether he'd survive!

    This is my favorite hockey video, some 9yo hockey freak of nature from Texas.

    He had anxiety for a long time related to that. Even when he heard about what happened to Zednik he said to journalists that he had a very bad day.

    Malarchuk recalls horror


    CALGARY -- He was back on the ice six games and 300 stitches later, determined to forget the skate-blade slash that opened his throat and nearly ended his life.

    And forget Clint Malarchuk did -- for 18 years, 11 months and 20 days -- until another NHL player was left bleeding and near death from a gash to the neck, once again from a teammate's razor-sharp skate, once again in Buffalo, New York.

    "I'm very emotional today -- I feel a lot of bad memories flowing back to me," said Malarchuk.

    "I thought I'd dealt with this sh..., sorry, I mean stuff. I guess it was all still inside, in my brain, somewhere."

    There's been scores of interviews since that fateful on-ice collision in 1989, when the image of Malarchuk holding his throat was broadcast to thousands of fans, the goalie's blood dribbling onto the ice like water from a tap.

    It became the defining moment in the talented Calgarian's 11-year NHL career, and Malarchuk thought two decades in the media spotlight had numbed him -- his only scar the one visible on his neck.
    And then it happened again, on Sunday night, to Florida Panthers forward Richard Zednik.

    It was a different Buffalo Sabres arena from the one where Malarchuk nearly bled to death, but otherwise, it was a scene of hockey horror replayed.

    Zednik's carotid artery was severed after a teammate caught him in the throat with a skate blade during a fall.

    He was rushed to Buffalo General Hospital for emergency surgery, having lost a life-threatening amount of blood, and is in stable condition.

    Malarchuk famously skated off the ice following his grisly accident, team trainer Jim Pizzutelli pinching the jugular vein closed in a quick-thinking move credited with saving the goalie's life.

    Now a goalie coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets, Malarchuk said he's struggling with Zednik's injury in a way he didn't with his own, back when his determination to play again meant burying his emotions.

    "Back then, I just wanted to come back," said Malarchuk.
    "Now, there are team psychologists and sports psychologists who can speak with him, and if I was Richard's GM or head coach, I'd have one on the next flight."

    When he heard about Zednik's injury, Malarchuk immediately contacted the Panther organization to offer his support, and to pass on his phone number in case Zednik wants someone to talk to, someone who understands like no one else.

    "There's nothing anybody can say to make this go away," Malarchuk said.
    "But I'd tell him he should get back as quick as he can -- I've extended my phone number in case I can help."

    I just watched it again, it had been a while since I'd seen it. It's so horrible. When I took my CPR courses they talked to us about Malarchuk and told us what to do in this type of injury. Like I mentioned in an earlier post you have to grab the artery with your fingers and pinch it so no more blood will spurt out. That's how the medic saved Malarchuk life and I would assume the doctor who went down on the ice did the same for Zednik.

    I just saw a brief clip of the blood gushing onto the ice and I nearly hurled, that is so horrible. If I was there in the crowd I would have gagged for sure.

    I'm wondering if they should start carrying some of that 'quick clot' stuff that is supposed to be good for situations like these where arteries/veins are severed and emergency situations.

    I remember watching the Malarchuk injury on TV when it happened. I cannot believe he survived and Zednik as well. They were really lucky that they and the medical staff kept calm, it saved their lives.

    That's okay, I love hockey enough to make up for your hate.



    Good news, Richard Zednik's condition has been upgraded from stable to good and is out of the intensive care unit. (He lost five pints of blood after having his carotid artery nearly severed. The attending surgeon, said the artery was not completely severed, but was "hanging by a thread.")

    I went to one game in Houston and I couldn't believe the poor quality of the sport. (Too many fights and not enough skill. And scantilly-clad cheeleaders? No, not necessary in my opinion.) I'll take college hockey or high school hockey over the AHL any day.

    I don't think that they would do any good. Because you can't stop an artery from pumping blood except if you pinch it. This may work for less dramatic injury. But the type of injury sustained here can kill you in a minute or 2 if nothing is done right away.

    Yeah - if you have a gushing artery there's only one thing you can do and that's pinch it closed (if you can) and get to the ER stat. I've seen a few hockey games (go Flames!) and there's a lot of pushing and shoving and a few teeth go flying but I'm guessing these really serious injuries are rare?
