VIDEO: Brayden Schenn cut by skate on stomach after hit, keeps playing
Hockey remains a tough sport. Brayden Schenn was cut by a stick that sliced his stomach but after some quick repairs he remained in the game.
Here we have Hockey Players Are Tough, Exhibit No. 1.934.
Flyers center Brayden Schenn was making a play on Devils forward Dainius Zubrus right in front of the Devils bench and came in with a pretty punishing hit. The hit was hard enough that it sent Zubrus falling to his backside. Meanwhile, that sent Zubrus' skates up in the air and Schenn got in the way.
Specifically, Zubrus' skate sliced Schenn's stomach as you could see the instant agony that Schenn felt as a result. Ooooouch.
Thankfully, the cut didn't look all that deep and after some quick repair work Schenn remained in the game because that's what hockey players do, even in the middle of the regular season.
