They’ll say Tye McGinn has the face of a hockey player, but he's looking a little more like a crash-test dummy these days.

The Philadelphia Flyers rookie got the worst of it in a fight with now former Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown, and this is what McGinn looks like now.

The official damage: a broken orbital bone requiring surgery and four-week break from hockey

Surprisingly enough, it looked like McGinn had the upper-hand in the fight early, but things changed rather quickly. After Brown connected with a heavy right, McGinn went down in a heap. Jersey torn and face bloodied, McGinn went straight to the locker room.

Believe it or not, McGinn actually returned to the game.

The Edmonton Oilers traded for Brown Monday, giving up a conditional fourth-round selection for his services. Apparently, that’s the going rate for a guy who breaks people’s faces.
