Puck out indefinitely after taking a Laperriere to the face
- Updated: December 2, 2009
An NHL hockey puck had to be carted off the ice during last Friday’s game between the Flyers and Sabres after taking an Ian Laperriere directly to the face.
Laperriere needed 50 to 100 stitches after the first period hit and lost seven of his teeth, but returned later in the game while the puck was rushed to a local hospital and could miss the rest of the season.
“The puck is doing as well as you can expect after taking a blow like that,” said one league official. “We’re told it’s out indefinitely, but you might remember the last time a puck took a Flyer to the face, it never made it back on the ice. So, it’s not looking good right now.”
