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.
