Florida Panters forward Richard Zednik had his neck slashed by a teammate’s skate in a freak accident during a game in Buffalo last night. The accident was eerily reminiscent of the Clint Malarchuk incident, which took place in Buffalo in March of 1989.
Thankfully doctors were able to stop the massive bleeding and Zednik is in stable condition in a Buffalo hospital.
One interesting side-note: The doctor who pinched the artery and stopped the bleeding was Les Bisson, one of the doctors who quite possibly saved Buffalo Bills safety Kevin Everett’s life back in September.
On second thought, my kid is never playing hockey! Or visiting the city of Buffalo for that matter!!
