New York Rangers forward Jimmy Vesey was hit in the mouth by the skate of Edmonton Oilers forward Zach Kassian on Saturday afternoon, leaving his mouth a bloodied mess and knocking out a couple of teeth.
Where did those teeth go you might be wondering?
Somewhere on the ice? Picked up by an ice crew member or swept away by the Zamboni only to be Lost forever?
Nope. They are still attached to his mouth. Sort of. They were lodged in his bottom lip.
Notice the X-ray.
That makes it look like there is only one tooth stuck in his lip but Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said after the game he actually has two in there and that “they are going to find a way to take them out.”
Vesey played 11 minutes in the Rangers’ 4-2 win.
