This may be a freak accident, but it is also a brutal one.
During Thursday night’s game between the Los Angeles Kings and Minnesota Wild, defenseman Matt Dumba just wanted to put the puck in the net. The Wild blue liner snapped the puck, which came out like a cannon ball, but ended up on poor Kings’ Sean Walker’s face, who was standing in front of his goalie.
Walker immediately went down on the ice in pain and his face bloodied up quite quickly, he needed help to get off the ice. It was clear after the incident that Dumba felt horrible about catching Walker in the face as many insiders noted how the defenseman was feeling at his team’s bench.
Check out what happened, but you sent you this warning : seeing this will hurt your face!
We all hope Walker is better and recovers soon for the injuries he sustained while blocking this powerful slap shot with his face! Head coach Todd McLellan mentioned in his postgame interview that Walker was seeing a doctor for his injuries.
After the game, Dumba was distraught when asked about what happened to Walker.
“I feel so bad about it. It’s got to be one of the worst shots I’ve taken in my career. I feel so bad. I’ve got to go apologize after this.”
How was work for you?!
