Need further proof hockey players are some of the toughest people on the planet?? Vancouver Canucks winger Nils Hoglander was left a bloody mess after taking a puck to the face Monday night — BUT HE STAYED IN THE GAME!!! The terrifying scene all went down in the Canucks vs. Maple Leafs tilt in Toronto … when in the first period, Jordie Benn threw a puck at the net that accidentally caught Hoglander right in the forehead.
Fortunately, Hoglander was wearing a visor … but the force of the shot was so strong, it still cut the 20-year-old badly.
Check out the clip, Hoglander was bleeding so profusely from his nose and forehead area … it covered his entire visor!
But, in true #HockeyGuy fashion … Hoglander wiped it all away with his hand, and then returned to the game a short time later!!
Bad news … Vancouver ended up losing, 3-1.
The good news? No doubting hockey players are still tough as hell!
