Between skating, shooting, and checking, St. Louis Blues winger Ryan Reaves took the opportunity to perform a bit of oral surgery on himself, yanking out what appears to be a sizable incisor. Midway through a game against the Blackhawks, Reaves forgot to check over his left shoulder and was hit by Brent Seabrook, sending him face-first into a wall of plexiglass. In a testament to the heartiness of hockey players versus some other sporting professionals (we’re looking at you, soccer players), Reaves paused to remove his own tooth only after completing his 2-minute shift. The Blues won the game, and Reaves won our everlasting admiration.
