Michael Del Zotto Escapes Serious Injury After Being Cut On The Neck By A Skate Blade

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

On his very first shift after sitting out nine games as a healthy scratch, the Flyers' defenseman went into the corner to make a defensive play and fell down.

Danny Briere tried to step over him and caught Del Zotto with his skate, slashing him on the left side of his neck.

“I wanted to take an angle on [Briere],” Del Zotto said. “I don’t know if I clipped a skate but went down and he skated away and I felt his blade hit my neck.”

It could have been a lot worse than the 20 or so stitches, but Del Zotto did not play again until the start of the second period.

At least he wasn’t seriously injured.

Del Zotto posted two pictures on instragram a few hours ago, see them below, not pretty.

 

What a way to finish 2014!
