It was a tough night for gruesome injuries on Saturday.
Lucic appeared to fall in the neutral zone and when he did, he took Vegas Golden Knights forward Tomas Nosek with him.
In the video below — and in a very serious event that wasn’t all that noticeable during the broadcast — Nosek’s skate grazed Lucic’s neck.
Lucic tweeted a picture of the cut following the Oilers 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights. As you can see, s some stitches were required to repair the wound.
In the tweet, he said, “Close call… but ok,” along with the hashtag. “#skategrazedjugular.”
Close call, indeed.
