What do you think is the Worst Hockey injury to date? Could be an Injury in itself,or something like what happened to Jagr. Which may,or may not hurt their team at a crucial time such as the playoffs.

I'm going to say "Clint Malarchuk" as Hockey injury. The guy took a skate to the jugular and nearly died on the ice, If it weren't for the quick reaction from the sabres medical staff, he would have died within minutes. "The main reason why goalies wear throat protecters nowadays".

I'd post a pic but. :puke: its like a fountain of blood.


so what do you think?

I heard that if the Malarchuk incident happened on the other side of the rink, he would have died because they would have had to take him all the way across the rink and it would have taken too long.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Travis Roy breaking a vertebrae and being paralyzed after crashing into the boards 10 seconds into his college career was pretty damn awful. As bad as the injury to Malarchuk was, at least he was able to play again.

The aforementioned were very bad. Maybe this one wasn't as severe, but Mark Howe getting impaled on the inside of the net when the bottom came to a point was pretty gruesome.

Donald Audette's arm injury a few years ago was pretty grusome. A player skated over his arm and wrist severing several tendons. He skated straight off the ice and was throwing himself against the wall in pain. Audette almost lost use of his arm if not for a micro-surgeon that was present in the arena at the time.

I believe the same happened to Yashin a couple of years ago too.

That is correct. That is how precious the time was to get Malarchuk to the hospital.

Very scary.

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.

That was scary and gross. At least he didn't lose his arm.

Trent McCleary going down to block the shot against the Flyers was very scary too. He got hit in the throat and almost died on the ice as well.

Berard getting Hossa's stick in the eye was a pretty nasty one too.

Chelios hit on Brian Propp in the 1989 playoffs, elbowed him in the head, just mashed him against the boards. The pool of blood rivaled the Malarchuk incident.
