Every time a hockey player steps on the ice, they're putting their body at risk, whether that be from hits, falls or getting hit by pucks, the risk of injury is always high.

Tonight in Ottawa as the Senators take on the Washington Capitals, Ottawa defender Artem Zub took a puck to the side of the face after an Alex Ovechkin shot was deflected; take a look.


Artem Zub heads to the locker room after getting hit by a puck.



Zub took the shot up high in the third period and was down for a few moments while being tended to by the Senators training staff before heading to the locker soon holing a towel to his face and leaving blood on the ice.

You never want to see anything like this, hopefully it's not as bad as it looked, but you never want to see that.
