New York Islanders forward Casey Cizikas is tough. And maybe a little lucky.
That’s the prevailing thought on Tuesday after Cizikas missed very little time after a scary moment where he was cut by a skate blade.
(See full video of that frightening moment in the video above.)
Yikes. Considering his return, perhaps it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it looked.
Islanders fans probably had flashbacks to that disturbing moment for Alexei Yashin in 2003, when the forward missed multiple weeks after a bad cut from a skate blade.
Things like these can go sideways later on, but at the moment, it seems like this situation isn’t nearly as serious. Thankfully.
