During last night’s second period in the Stars-Oilers game, Matt Hendricks innocently turned around as the puck went by him in his own zone. As he turned around, Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski wound up and fired a puck towards the net. Only problem was the puck never made it to the net. It connected squarely with Hendricks’ dick — almost at point blank range.
WARNING: This isn’t the easiest thing to watch.
Hendricks struggled to skate off the ice, and when he eventually made it into the tunnel, he collapsed. Hendricks’ balls may have survived the slapshot, but his cup sure didn’t.

Fuck. The sight of that cup makes my nuts cringe. Thankfully, Hendricks is okay and even returned to the bench afterwards.
Matt Hendricks back on the bench. What a gamer.

It takes some balls to return after that. Hockey players are the toughest athletes out there, hands down. I remember working the Stars game when Rich Peverly collapsed on the bench, momentarily died, then regained consciousness after receiving chest compressions and getting defibrillated. He wanted back in the game..
