An injury that needed over 30 stitches would probably keep the lot of us on bed rest for a month or so.
But it didn’t seem to faze tough-as-nails Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert in the slightest. In a game against the Rangers Friday night, Calvert was the recipient of a stick to the face that left the ice a bloody mess and required some 36 stitches.
After getting closed up and going through a series of concussion tests, Calvert was back on the ice like nothing happened and further showcased his resiliency by scoring the game-winning goal.
In the locker room after the game, Calvert looked like he’d just been peeled off the battlefield and dropped at the infirmary.
