Oilers Player Has Mouth Destroyed By Puck To Face, Reacts Accordingly

For most people, having their mouth obliterated by a thick, rubber object is no laughing matter.

Most people aren’t hockey players, though.

Edmonton Oilers forward Drake Caggiula suffered multiple broken teeth after taking a puck to the face during his team’s 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. And after the game, Caggiula reacted by joking about the incident and sharing gnarly photos — because, you know, hockey.

3 years of braces were all for nothing. Became a real old time hockey player last night. Thanks to @anaheimducks for the emergency repairs last night.

Despite Caggiula’s positive approach to the ordeal, his busted face forced him to sit out the Oilers’ 6-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.
