For the second time in as many games, an NHL official has been hurt during a game in Calgary.

Unlike the Dennis Wideman-Don Henderson situation, this latest incident is likely to be without controversy.

On Wednesday, in a game between the Calgary Flames and visiting Carolina Hurricanes, veteran referee Mike Leggo was accidentally hit in the face with a puck from a clearing attempt late in the first period.

Leggo appeared to be cut on the left side of his face. But he did return to the game.
