Richard Zednik Neck Injury – Multiple Angles Video

Richard Zednik Neck Injury - Multiple Angles Video

On February 10, 2008 in an NHL game between the Florida Panthers and the Buffalo Sabres, Panthers forward Richard Zednik had his neck injured by Olli Jokinen, a team-mate and Panthers captain who tripped over the leg of Sabres forward Clarke MacArthur. Olli Jokinen’s skate cut a deep gash on the right side of Richard Zednik’s neck, puncturing his external carotid artery, letting blood squirt uncontrollably over the ice.

Richard Zednik was quickly taken to a Buffalo hospital and recovered from the injury, however he missed the rest of the season. No need to tempt the devil, I guess.

Video below is a compilation of videos offering various camera angle views of Richard Zednik’s neck injury. As commentators can be heard saying, similar accident happened to Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk likewise in Buffalo on March 22, 1989. Clint Malarchuk had his internal carotid artery completely severed and blood gushed out of his neck like mad. I will post that video later. Meanwhile, the multi-angle video of Richard Zednik’s neck injury is below:

  1. Off topic but wanted to say this. So what if we get rid of the jihadists, we will never live in peace. Western world against the Middle East, i’m so sick of all this bullshit. our planet is so fucking tiny yet so many of us think we are the centre of this universe – we are nothing but floating dust.

    It’s so naïve to think everybody can get along but we should, it all comes down to our fucking EGO, survival of the fittest, yet many hands can make light work.

    existentialism is a bad disorder.

  2. Gosh this was terrible. I remember the incident with the goalie back in the eighties. Amazing that people can survive this. I’ve said it before “hockey ain’t for pussies.”
