Happy Hudler wasn't too happy the other night, he took a skate to the neck but according to reports he got off lucky:

Calgary Flames winger Jiri Hudler had a close call playing for Trinec in the Czech League.

Play-by-play announcer Roman Jedlicka reports that Hudler was hospitalized after taking a skate to the neck Wednesday. Hudler needed stitches but avoided a major injury because the skate blade didn’t cut an artery, according to Jedlicka.

Great relief. I'd hate to see that happen to anyone. Good to see that he escaped anything major.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Man, thats very unfortunate. Major artery or not, anything that happens in the neck area is horrible.

Poor little Huddie... glad he's OK. Hope we get to see him....and the rest of the Wings... some day soon. He's still a Wing to me, even if he ends up in Calgary.

You mean "even though he ended up in Calgary..." He IS a Calgary Flame.

I may not like the tool, but I am damn glad he is OK. I watched BOTH Malarchuk and Zednik happen live on TV and neither of them was a pretty sight and were both super scary and made my heart skip...I thought I was watching someone die on the ice...Get Well soon Hudler, so when the NHL returns we can whoop your can!

Laugh it up, delete it all, I'll be laughing when it happens! -4/17/14
