Hockey players are some of the toughest people on the planet. The sport is so physically grueling and takes a huge toll on your body every night. That being said mistakes happen.
Yesterday Sens forward Connor Brown was hit in the face by a puck in warm-ups. It didn’t seem too serious and Brown was okay to play. He seemed fine out there considering he had a goal and an assist as well.
Well, it turns out that the puck that hit him did some real damage as his jaw was broken.
He will be week-to-week with the injury but it goes to show how much these players are used to pain.
