Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole to practice on Monday wearing a full face shield. And we understand why. The poor defender was hit by a shot from Nashville Predators captain Roman Josi and lost three teeth.
After underdoing some procedures to fix his face, Cole hopes to be back in uniform tonight against the New York Rangers.
When asked what through his mind before the injury, Cole revealed his reaction to seeing Josi's shot heading his way. And it is hilarious.
Hey, it's better to laugh than to cry about it.
Rosi's blast hit Cole straight in the mouth. See the shot once again down here:
