It actually didn't hurt that much, or as much as you'd think, you're in shock really. I put my hand on my face and there was no blood and I was like wtf? then a few seconds later...it was everywhere. I really, really don't wanna wear a visor but after this...I don't wanna risk losing an eye in rec hockey.
Wow that sounds almost exactly like mine guy took a slap shot from the point deflected up off a teammates stick right in the nose. I blacked out for a second but it was so short I was able to catch myself from falling all the way over with my hand, no blood or pain for a good 5 or 6 seconds and then I started leaking all over the ice. Still it didn't really hurt at all the whole time from the time I was hit sitting in the hospital til it was healed all the way. It broke and swelled up really fast though. I started wearing a fishbowl and was back playing the next day
