So you want to be a hockey player…Mitchell Callahan loses (more) teeth

Update: Callahan's had surgery for a broken jaw and he's in trouble for Tweeting a gross "Selfie."

The Grand Rapids Griffins are hosting the Iowa Wild presently, and Mitchell Callahan...Has donated to the cause...




Callahan already had a set of partials for his two front teeth...So I guess losing more teeth is losing more teeth.

I'm not posting the ugly "selfie," but you can see it here if you wish (very graphic), and later, Callahan had surgery:

The Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner reports that Callahan's in a little trouble for doing what he did:

It appeared about four teeth were collected off the ice. After he posted the photo, he was taken to the hospital, Griffins team officials said.

"I saw him come back (and then) I saw his teeth come back with him," said right winger Trevor Parkes. "Couple of us had some shaky stomachs after that."

Coach Jeff Blashill said he heard about Callahan's tweet and was not pleased.

Asked if he approved of it, Blashill said, "No."

"Shame on me for not having a more direct statement on that," Blashill said, "but I just think we have to be real careful what we put out on social media."

Callahan Tweeted a photo of his teeth. I am not going to post it because it’s gruesome, but you can see it here (be warned it’s really awful).
