Boston Bruins assistant coach Doug Houda was hit with a puck while standing behind the team’s bench during the second period of Wednesday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.
He left the bench and went to the locker room to get stitched up.
Doug Houda smiles as he comes off the bench after being hit by the puck (and splitting his head open).. hockey, man. http://t.co/NEYNvjz39m—

Houda returned to the bench just a few minutes later with several staples closing his wound, proving that hockey coaches are tough, too, not just the players.
Doug Houda, ladies and gentlemen. http://t.co/QCHk9j5VML—

Of course, Houda is no stranger to the dangers of the sport as a former defenseman who played for six different teams over 18 NHL seasons beginning in 1985.
