Johnny Boychuk Needed 90 Stitches After Taking a Skate to the Face

Written by Nik D

Last night, Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk took a skate to the face and suffered a gruesome injury.

The injury reached his eyelid, fortunately not his eye, but still required 90 stitches to fix him up.

Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello says that Boychuk will be fine, however there is not currently a timeline for return.

It is good to hear that Boychuk is doing ok, the incident looked horrible and it could have ended much worse for Boychuk.
