Brayden Schenn's face gets cut by Wayne Simmonds' skate blade

New, comment

A bit of Flyer-on-Flyer crime occurred in the scariest way.

Getting cut by a skate blade is a danger in hockey. It comes with the territory. But getting cut in the face? That's not something many players are prepared for, especially when the one causing the injury is your teammate.

The Philadelphia Flyers lost Brayden Schenn in the last minutes of the first period against the Ottawa Senators when teammate Wayne Simmonds' skate blade cut his face.

Thankfully, Schenn returned in the second period with a few stitches. But there's no question he dodged a big bullet.
