Todd Fedoruk’s New Face

From Tim Panaccio at The Philadelphia Inquirer (via Mercury News)
Todd Fedoruk might be the only player in the NHL whose face is largely man-made. That's because the most recent former Flyer to return has titanium plates for cheekbones on both sides of his face, after his latest surgery to repair a broken right cheekbone and orbital injury following a fight last month with Minnesota's Derek Boogaard. "At least my face doesn't set off the alarms at the airport," Fedoruk deadpanned. "This was a significant break, worse than the last one (in 2005). But I'm still capable of doing my job."
