Edmonton Oilers’ forward Taylor Hall learned the hard way that it’s important to keep your head up while playing hockey after taking a brutal hit from Florida Panthers’ defenseman Erik Gudbranson.

Hall crossed into the neutral zone with the puck attempting to make a play down the ice. Unfortunately for Hall, he forgot to keep his eyes up and remain aware of his surroundings. (RELATED: RIP To This NHL Player Who Had His Head Taken Off By MASSIVE Hit [VIDEO])

Gudbranson saw the easy target, and absolutely drilled him.
