Note if he uses proper technique when trying to block the shot - head to the boards/skates to the middle of the ice, Trent McCleary does not get hurt.

Basic shot blocking skill learned by Pee Wee at the latest.
Well it looks like he slipped but that's besides the point.

If a player blocks any shot he is putting his body in harms way as he can't control where the shot ends up and can't react quickly enough if it is a high shot to the head for instance.
