The latest victim is one Mitch Callahan of the Grand Rapids Griffins, whose mouth, teeth and lips all took a bit of a battering after he was hit in the face by a shot from his own teammate in a clash against the Iowa Wild on Wednesday night. The message he posted alongside the picture he put up on Twitter is a little bit of an understatement.

 

Bad and all as the picture looks – and it looks really, really bad – it should be pointed out that Callahan was already missing his two front teeth before the incident but he is in danger of soon becoming the real-life equivalent of Gummy Joe from The Simpsons if he keeps losing them at this rate.
