I was once hit in the neck by the skate of a falling player, and I could hear the blade scrape against my neck quard. I was happy it was there.
It's a mild discomfort you'd get used to.
How many NHL games have there been in the last 25 years with those two incidents? Maybe 1200 games per season * 25 seasons * 40 players = 1,200,000. So 1 in 600,000 odds of that happening = 0.00017% change of it happening?
