Nikolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets took a puck directly to the face against the New York Islanders Thursday night.

The game was halfway through the overtime period when an Islanders player ripped off a wrist shot from the center of the Jets zone. (SLIDESHOW: This NHL Player’s Girlfriend Is A Sexy Model Almost Too Hot To Handle)

The puck appeared to ricochet off a stick and strike Ehlers in the face, and the Danish-born forward instantly dropped to the ice. An Islanders’ player picked up the puck and scored, then the players around Ehlers quickly signaled for medical attention. (VIDEO: Connor McDavid Scores 20 Seconds Into The First McDavid Vs Eichel Showdown)
