In what can only be described as a cross between what glass looks like when it’s shattered at a hockey game and what happens when somebody launches a fly ball through a window, the glass at a British Columbia Hockey League game is a little worse for wear after one player’s leg got away from him.
Teal Burns of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs was swooping behind the Nanaimo Clippers’ goal and trying to hold off a defender when he lifted his leg just a bit beyond the normal leg-lifting height. The result was some breakage of glass — but just one little part. While shattered glass is not such a rare sight after hits into the boards in hockey, the neatly shaped hole — with the rest of the glass intact — certainly is.
That’s a strange one. Check it out in the video below, with a hat tip to Puck Daddy.
