I played Juniors with a guy back in late 70's. He charged a guy at the point to block his shot. The puck ramped up his stick. It angled up and hit him starting at the upper jaw and went up through most of his face breaking his jaw, cheek bone, orbital bone and he ended up losing his eye. It's been 30 years and I will never forget that sound. Like hitting a pumpkin with a baseball bat. I was about 12' away and still got splattered with blood. It was difficult to finish the game. He didn't play organized hockey anymore but he did play pick up a couple of years afterward.
Worst I ever had was slap shot to the chest in an adult league with no shoulder pads on. I couldn't breath for a lot longer than I thought I could ever hold my breath. I thought my heart stopped.
