Kukla's Korner Hockey

Badge Of Honor

from Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post,

While the newspaper industry remains in trouble, one of its enduring charms is the relative lack of facial injuries requiring multiple stitches suffered by its employees. Unless and until they write something about Urban Meyer’s quarterbacks, I suppose.

Not every industry can make such a claim. The hockey-playing industry, for example. Hence, Brooks Laich sitting out two consecutive games, as his face healed from an unexpected collision with a hockey puck during Tuesday’s practice.

“He’s a young buck; he isn’t cut up too much yet,” the asymmetrically-faced Mike Knuble said while discussing Laich’s new facial geometry. “You don’t have a career in the NHL until you break your face once.”
