PHOTO: This is what can happen when you block a shot
Colorado Avalanche defenseman Ryan O'Byrne was credited with two blocked shots during their 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. One of them destroyed his knee.
One of those shots turned his knee into a giant ball of pain.
And then he Tweeted it.
Blocked shot off the knee last night in San Jose..... twitter.com/ryanobyrne84/s…— Ryan O'Byrne (@ryanobyrne84) February 27, 2013
So you want to play in the NHL? This is what can happen. The Avalanche haven't announced any sort of injury for O'Byrne, other than what appears to be a lot of swelling.
Don't worry, folks. Doctors can help with the knee pain and rebuild it if necessary.
