Back when playing Junior a teammate charged the point to block a shot with his stick extended in front of him. Puck ramped up his stick and hit him in the face just next to his chin at a steep angle. It sounded like someone hit a pumpkin with a bat. I was about 20' away and got blood splattered on me. He looked really dazed but he didn't go down. We tried to get to him and get him off the ice down by the Zamboni door. As soon as we got the door open he just passed out into the arms of the trainer. He ended up losing all the teeth on the left side of his mouth, broke his jaw, cheekbone, orbital bone, and ultimately lost his left eye. He did end up playing pick up again a few years later but that was a day I will never forget.
