PHOTO: Alex Burrows chips his front tooth ... on a granola bar
Alex Burrows isn't unlike a lot of hockey players now with a chipped front tooth. It's how he got that chipped tooth that's different.
Hockey players are a dentist's nightmare (or dream). They have hands down the worst teeth in sports, a byproduct of being willing to stop pucks with their bodies or taking sticks to the face.
How did he come to look like Lloyd Christmas? Apparently by eating the world's hardest granola bar. They must make those things out of concrete where Burrows likes to shop.
Wasn't a stick, wasn't a puck. It was a granola bar. Still, all smiles for Burr. pic.twitter.com/FHZpr3shXj— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) March 27, 2014
At least he wasn't biting a finger.
It's been a tough season for Burrow, who only recently got off the schneid in the goal-scoring department. Having your tooth chipped by a granola bar won't help matters with just five goals and nine assists to show for 41 games this season.
