It’s a scene that could have been a lot worse. Sean Mallonee and the North Iowa Bulls were playing New Ulm in a regular season hockey game.
The game was going as scheduled, until Mallonee’s stick got tangled up with a skate of a New Ulm player. The other skate hit Mallonee in the throat and Mallonee had to be rushed to the hospital for surgery.
Thankfully for everyone involved, just skate missed an artery by a couple of centimeters.
