Saturday night, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole put himself in front of a blistering slap shot by Roman Josi - and ended up blocking the shot with his face.
Talk about dedication.
The defenseman definitely lost a few teeth on this play. He left the ice under his own power.
Teammates were definitely cognizant of the sacrifice Cole made and spoke about it following the game.
The Penguins ended up winning the game 4-0, in part because of sacrifices like these.
