The Blackhawks’ Burish Gets Throat Slashed By Skate

There’s no sugar-coating this incident from game one of the Western Conference Finals between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks. In a disturbing moment, Adam Burish is an innocent by-stander to his teammate falling to the ice, but the teammate’s skate ends up cutting directly across the neck area of Burish, causing him to bleed profusely. Thankfully, the blade did not pierce any vital organs or arteries in Burish’s neck. It only reminded us of Richard Zednik, among others, who suffered a similarly frightening injury. With players stepping back onto the ice after incidents like this, how can the supreme toughness of hockey players ever be questioned?
