PLAYERS: Sam Gagner
TEAMS: Edmonton Oilers
Sam Gagner‘s face has seen better days. The Edmonton Oilers forward suffered a broken jaw on a high-stick from Canucks forward Zack Cassian during the second period of Saturday night’s game. Whereas Cassian scored an eight-game suspension for the errant stick, Gagner was on the receiving end of some misplaced teeth and a scary amount of swelling around his mouth. Gagner will undergo surgery on Tuesday, but on the eve of going under the knife, he tweeted out the ghastly sight formerly known as his face. Check it out in the photo below. Thank you all for the support. Excited to come back stronger and hopefully better looking than a few days ago. http://t.co/jyU91TMSuu— Sam Gagner (@89SGagner) September 24, 2013   Filed under: Anna Fogel, Headlines, NHL
