Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty took a brutal shot to the face Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Pacioretty was hit by the puck as he skated in front of the Blackhawks net. He instantly dropped to the ice clearly as medical staff rushed to his aid. (SLIDESHOW: 12 Times Sports Pundit Kristine Leahy Looked Absolutely Stunning)


That’s a scary moment, but lucky he eventually got up. Taking a puck the face is never fun, but he shook it off and was back on the ice in no time.
