The video posted above shows former NHL player Richard Zednik innocently skating in Slovakia with a group of youth hockey players on Sunday.

That is, until the roof started to collapse under the weight of heavy snow and ice, and came crashing down to the playing surface just minutes after everybody had safely exited.

The most amazing part of it all? Nobody was injured. Thankfully.

Starting at the 1:10 mark the camera takes a walk around the boards, giving you an idea as to just how serious the damage is and how fortunate everyone is to have been able to safely walk away.

Zednik spent 13 seasons in the NHL with the Washington Capitals, Montreal Canadiens, New York Islanders and Florida Panthers, scoring 200 goals in 745 career games. He last played in the NHL during the 2008-09 season as a member of the Panthers.

Zednik got his neck sliced upen be a teammates skate, Oli Jokinen, while playing with the Panthers.  



Looked like  he had one hell of a neck guard in that video.

Did he also have a stroke or a heart issue a few years back as well. On ice incident? I forget to be honest.

The alternative title of the article could also be, "Richard Zednik finally catches a break!"
