This animated GIF of the Tampa Bay Lightning's Steven Stamkos being struck in the face with a puck comes to us from the esteemed @bubbaprog over at Mocksession. It is not pleasant. It's not even gnarly in a cool way. While not terribly graphic, it is cringe-inducing, and if you're the type to feel empathy for your fellow man, you probably won't enjoy seeing it.
All right? All right. It's after the jump.
