KHL's Denis Sokolov Gets Carotid Artery Slashed

Ice hockey is a very dangerous game. It is one of the most physical games around. Every shift you have people trying to take you off of the puck via stick check, slash or body check. All of this is taking place while the players are skating on blades of steel at very high speeds.

It is good that incidents involving a players a skate are not more frequent. But, they are not non existent. Clint Malarchuck, playing for the Buffalo Sabres in 1989, had his throat cut after an opposing player slid into the crease and collided with Malarchuk. 

Taylor Hall was on the wrong end of his own teams skate when he went down during warm up and his teammate tried to jump over him, 30 stitches later, and Hall has a pretty gnarly scare on the left side of his forhead.

Most recently, in the KHL, in a game between Yekaterinburg and Traktor Chelyabinsk, Denis Sokolov was added to this unfortunate club. The incident is at around the 1:10 mark of the video after the jump.



Sokolov went down behind the net and Jan Bulis tried to leap over Sokolov, slashing his neck on the way down. Sokolov lost nearly a pint of blood, but is recovering and will miss his team's next game. Just one game! Can you believe people out there say hockey players aren't the toughest athletes around.

  3. A referee in a Flyers/Rangers game took a skate to the face in 2009. He retired shortly thereafter.

  4. I do not think it was his carotid artery, had it been, he would have been dead before he got off the ice-and the blood would have been spurting
