If you ever get the chance, watch the video of Barry Ashby losing his eye after being hit directly in it during the Stanley Cup finals in I believe it was the Flyers' first cup season. Maybe it was the second.

But I remember watching the video some time ago and thinking, "Daaaayum!!!!!

Went down on the ice to block a shot at the point and the rest is history. He lay on the ice writhing in pain with his hands over his face and everyone crowded around him from players, to refs, to medics.

Pretty nasty stuff and he never played again.

Ashcan was a hell of a warrior.

In honor of one of the greatest dmen to ever play the game, I remain to this day and forever after a lifetime member of the Scott Stevens Fan Club:

"If you ever had to describe what a Devil player would be," said Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello, "the name would be Scott Stevens."

"He was just huge," Devils left wing Patrik Elias said of walking into training camp the first time in 1995. "I was afraid of him. You had a 170-pound guy coming here and he was 220, 225 with these paws like a bear. I was pretty intimidated the first few years. I'm happy he was on my side the whole time."

didn't they end up retiring his number? no. 4 i believe.

not the most talented guy, didn't do much offensively, but played his heart out and was an amazing defensive dman.

i read about his career somewhere. they got him from the bruins i believe and he spent a while in minors but never gave up and made it to the flyers and was amazing or something.

Hahahaha...long overdue. Now they need to get rid of Jacobs.

The problem is, NJ only plays them 4 times a year. We were only able to get them to trade JT and fire the idiot GM. If we played them 8 times a year, maybe Jacobs might have an epiphany and sell the team.

When the Flames/Ducks games got pulled this show Legends came on and they said Terry Sawchuk died after falling into a bbq pit? Huh? :blink:

He was wrestling with teammate Ron Stewart (I believe). I also think they were on the Rangers at the time.

There has always been speculation there's more to the story, but Stewart never said anything.

Ashby!! That's the one. Thanks, Thief. I remember watching that game. He caught that one full force right on the orbital bone.

This wasnt as bloody as the other ones mentioned but in 1995-96 when Eric Lacroix hit Mick Voukota from behind and his face hit blue part between the glass and boards. WOW, I'd never forget that one.
