    Well, since I'm late and a couple of the guys I would have listed have been said (haha, like Bobby Orr isn't obvious though)... Cam Neely had an outstanding career over all, so injury didn't prevent him from that... but I'm sure he would have played longer and put up more than only one more 50 goal season if not for Ulffy. I'm stretching things a bit today. Haha. It's first day in, I think, five that it hasn't rained and I've been in the house because I didn't have work or plans. Ahhh.

    I can't recall any wacky hockey injuries off the top of my head but I have a personal one.

    I was throwing around a baseball (a real baseball not a softball or something) and I was distracted by a mosquito (God, I hate those things) and when I looked up this ball was coming at me! It was like in slow motion though because I had enough time to think "Uh oh" and then try to duck. It went WHAM and hit my forehead. OW did that hurt!

    Oh another time (I just remembered this like 6 hours later) just this past December, we got a lot of ice at my house. I was wearing slippers and had to get something from the car. As soon as I stepped out onto the porch I noticed EVERYTHING and I mean everything was coated in ice. I was so stupid that I tried to hold onto the railing and walk down the steps. Silly me. I slipped and landed on the cold, icy sidewalk on my backside and my slippers flew off into the ice coated grass! I felt like such a klutz and my lower back hurt soo bad!

    Do hemorrhoids count as an injury? Alexei Kasatonov missed three games due to hemorrhoids when he played for New Jersey.

    Joey Kocur also got an infection in his hand and almost had it amputated after he connected with Larry Playfair's teeth in a fight.

    I can't recall a wacky injury - although I have a habit of burning myself every time I cook dinner. (Unfortunately I cook every night.)

    Mr. B broke his ankle trying to break a 2 x 4 with his foot . . . alcohol was not a factor until AFTER the break. I told him to make up a lie about how it happened; but he told the truth and everyone in the ER laughed . . .

    My BIL broke his wrist pulling the sheet up in bed . . .

    I've had 3 in baseball.

    Once I was warming up in right field. I twisted back to make a catch and pulled a muscle in my right leg (though the area had tightened up cuz I was hit by a pitch there in the game before)

    Also once I was playing hotbox I slid into the bag the fielder went to put the tag down but the ball was slipping out and itpopped out and hit me in the mouth and cut my lip

    And when I was in tee ball I took a line drive tothe face once and lost a tooth

    Ray Emery hurt his elbow last off-season playing baseball. Wasn't Jeter put on the 15-day DL for getting a Charlie horse last year or two years ago? Only in baseball...

    Dumbest injury I've had...hmmmm....can't really think of any. Being winded because I smoked at the time? That's pretty stupid...lol

    IDK you guys grabbed all the good injuries up.Joe so what your trying to say is Inge is a pillow bitter.

    So many injuries I have inflicted on myself through the years of hockey and bouncing. I have left a lot of blood and skin in a lot of places.

    One night working security at a club on the shore,one of my co-workers went running with his flashlight on. So as the supervisor of the club I ran across the stage and followed. The stage had equipment and such everywhere and of course the lights where dim. So as I side stepped the bassist, and moved away from the keyboard, I smashed my Neither-region on the corner of the stair railing, got outside to find out he was going to say hi to a friend. Hunched over,cringed, almost cried and walked like I had a potato chip in my but I was afraid to break. It looked like someone hit me with a ball pen hammer in my grassy Noll. I had a hard time walking and a fowl purple colored pelvis for weeks.Lot's of Nuprin that month.

    Also The Practice before our State Championship game one of my forwards hit me in the head with a shot and cut a hole straight through my ear ...I could put my finger straight threw it.1 year later in Juniors my coach knocked out my front teeth with a fluttering wrister from center ice...wtf!!!

    I heard of a player (Plays for the Sabres) missed a game because of a sore forearm from playing guitar hero too long.

    My injury was a skate cut my neck. The blade left about an inch cut on both sides of my juggler. I was very lucky!!

    Well, I don't have any NHL stories, but I have a story from my hockey team ;]

    Ok it was after the game and basically everyone was all changed, just getting there stuff together and this girl was trying to zip her bag up but the zipper wouldn't move, so she was pulling it and pulling it and finally it ripped off and with all her force from her hand she...basically stabbed herself with a zipper in the forehead. It was bleeding like crazy and she was real dizzy and whatever, and you could see the mark on her for weeks after.
