Pascal Dupuis pulls his own tooth

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Pascal Dupuis became the latest NHL player to yank out his own tooth on the bench.

Hockey players lose teeth. It's simply part of the job and one of the hazards that come with playing the game for a living. Over the past couple of years however we've seen a lot more examples of players having to actually pull their own teeth on the bench. Maybe we're looking for it. Maybe it's the additional cameras in the arena. Either way, we seem to catch it more than we used to as it happens.

Here is the latest installment, featuring Pascal Dupuis of the Pittsburgh Penguins after he was accidentally struck in the face by the stick of his teammate, Kris Letang.
