Watch the video. Not really any blood to show. But shows how he got cut. Amazing. Wow.
I guess we need to change the headline from Jugular vein to Carotid Artery. That's even worse than Jugular.BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Florida Panthers forward Richard Zednik required lifesaving surgery after severing his carotid artery, his agent told The Associated Press on Monday.
Zednik was in stable condition while recovering at a Buffalo hospital after losing a significant amount of blood during Sunday's game at Buffalo, agent David Schatia said. Schatia didn't have further details because he had just arrived in Montreal following a trip oversees.
Zednik was sliced across the right side of the throat by teammate Olli Jokinen's skate in a frightening accident midway through the third period of Buffalo's 5-3 victory.
Canada's Sportsnet cable-TV network reported on its Web site that the skate blade just missed cutting the jugular vein.
Yeah he is in stable condition. I used to love watching hockey until the ystopped airing it on ESPN and ESPN 2. I love the New Jersey Devils.

Freaky............glad he is OK
No Negative Attitudes Allowed ! A negative attitude is like a disease. If allowed to grow, it will spread and become an epidemic
That is a scary sport.... Especially with all the fighting!!
Ouch, freaky. Did anyone see "Blades of Glory" ? Eerily reminiscent
I'm glad he's ok.
True... Never really thought about it, but you don't need to take 4 guys off the football team in order for the other team to score... now, maybe if it's old miss or something...
I never really got that. I still dont' get it. I don't think I want to get it.
