Last weekend, both Anaheim Ducks forward George Parros and Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty take pucks to the face. Parros, who doesn't wear a visor, had surgery on his left eye Monday to fix a torn retina. He'll be fine after taking the next four weeks to recover. Luckily for Doughty, he was saved by his visor and played the remainder of the game.
Early in the third period of tonight's Boston Bruins and New York Islanders game, Daniel Paille took a Steve Staios slapshot directly to the face:
Via SB Nation Boston's Jesse Holland, here's the bloody mess Paille's helmet was afterwards:
Very encouraging that Paille was quick to get up off the ice and down the runway on his own power. He didn't return to the game and Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said afterwards that Paille took it near the nose and will see a specialist tonight.
The Bruins separated themselves from the Islanders with a 3-goal third period en route to a 6-2 victory. Milan Lucic ...

The Bruins’ Daniel Paille takes a hard shot right on his visor from the Islanders’ Steve Staios which was a very scary moment in the game. Paille was bleeding heavily and had to leave the game with just over three minutes into the third period. The Bruins defeated the New York Islanders 6-2 on the shoulders of a pair of goals and three points from Nathan Horton.
For those of you who are squeamish, you probably should stop right here at this point of the post since it all goes down hill from here.

Daniel Paille had surgery on his injured nose, and Rich Peverley returned to Bruins practice today.
After being hit in the face by a slap shot during Monday night's 6-2 win over the New York Islanders at TD Garden, Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille was sent to be examined by a specialist.
While George Parros is out of the Anaheim Ducks line up for the next four weeks recovering from a retinal tear, he better start thinking "visor." His latest eye injuries can be added to the growing list of reasons why they should be mandatory. In hockey, pucks happen. As do sticks. And other flukes of nature. Do visors protect in all cases? No. But do they protect...
The Bruins announced that Daniel Paille suffered a broken nose and facial lacerations when he was struck in the face by an Islander defenseman Steve Staios slapshot at 3:09 of the third period in the Bruins 6-2 win last night at the Garden.

from the Ducks PR department, George Parros had laser surgery on his left eye this afternoon to correct a torn retina. Parros suffered the injury last Friday (Nov. 4) at the club’s practice in Detroit (deflected puck). He is expected to make a full recovery and return to game action in approximately four weeks.
With a pair of forwards battling injuries, the Bruins have summoned Zach Hamill to augment their depth up front. Hamill was recalled on an emergency basis Wednesday afternoon and will join the club for its morning skate on Thursday. He will be available if needed for that night's matchup with Edmonton at the Garden. Hamill was the Bruins' first-round pick in 2007 (8th overall...
