After taking a vicious high-stick from the Vancouver Canucks Zack Kassian, an offense that got Kassian suspended eight games, Edmonton Oilers forward Sam Gagner tweeted a picture of his gruesomely broken jaw. This is tough to look at and Gagner has already had surgery to repair his jaw to get him back into the lineup as soon as possible.
Thank you all for the support. Excited to come back stronger and hopefully better looking than a few days ago. pic.twitter.com/jyU91TMSuu
