That Moment a Hockey Player Takes a Puck to the Face at Full Speed (VIDEO)

Blue Jackets player Zach Werenski provides a prime example of why hockey is one of the most grueling sports played today. It’s non-stop, physically challenging sport and it takes giants with guts of steal to win.

Zach Werenski is one of those giants. Proof of this unrolled during a playoff game the other day and it was ugly. Werenski was hit in the face with a puck that was passed at full speed.

Directly in the face.

Full video below followed by his twitter post showing the aftermath.

Ouch!
