Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Mike Komisarek won’t take his frustrations out on his stick anytime soon again.
Komisarek missed Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo after getting a slice of graphite from an exploding stick into his eye.
He was shooting some pucks after practice Monday and after he missed the net a few times, he smashed his stick in frustration.
“Stick breaks and a bunch of graphite goes in my eye and my face and had to go see the eye specialist,” said Komisarek, humbled by his own misadventure.
“Had it removed. In the end, had a little stitch in the eyeball. Mark that down as a first and something I don’t want to do again. Just a bad accident. At the end of the day, don’t take it out on your stick and hit the net. It’s not the stick’s fault.
“It could have been a lot worse. It’s definitely my fault for taking it out on the stick. I had one piece of graphite in my eye that was deep. It was scary going through it. But luckily it wasn’t anything serious and the doc was able to pull it out after digging in my eyeball for an hour.”
