Morgan Barron, a forward for the Winnipeg Jets, was a true "hockey guy" on Tuesday.
In Game 1 of the first round series between the Jets and the Vegas Golden Knights.
Goalie Laurent Brossoit's skate hit Barron in the face during a chaotic scrum in front of the net.
Barron got a skate just above his right eye and was in a lot of pain when he got off the ice.
Fans were worried about the 24-year-old's health after such a scary accident, but Barron didn't leave the hockey world in the dark for long.
He returned to the bench halfway through the second period with a cage on and 75 (!!) stitches above his eye.
