Jason Fuchs of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League experienced a scare during Saturday’s game when he lost the tip of his left pinky finger while blocking a shot.
Fuchs took a slap shot from the point right to his hand and immediately ripped off his glove in pain. The 18-year-old then raced to the bench once he realized what had happened — while play continued — and promptly was tended to by the team’s medical staff.
The team didn’t have to search far, though, as the pieces were still in Fuchs’ glove. He was rushed to the hospital, and the finger was stitched up. The Swiss prospect even rejoined his team for the trip home to Rouyn-Noranda.
Video of the play can be seen below, and although it isn’t very gory, it is a tad unsettling.
