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.
If there were ever an argument for mandatory cages/full sheilds, this is it.
