Adam Burish Nearly Gets His Throat Slashed By A Skate Blade: Video

Adam Burish is a very lucky man.

During Sunday’s 5-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, the Chicago Blackhawks forward had his throat cut by teammate Ben Eager’s skate. Eager had fallen forward and kicked upward with his skate while doing so.

After the game, Burish reflected on the injury. “I don’t know how I’m so darn lucky,” Burish said. “It was centimeters, millimeters away from slicing (his throat).”

“I don’t know how my head is still connected here,” he said. “I saw his skate — it was like he did a figure skating move and kind of whipped his skate up. I just watched it go right into my neck.”

When you see an incident like this, you immediately think of Clint Malarchuk and Richard Zednik, but fortunately for Adam Burish, the skate only grazed him and left him with a cut. Had the skate gone just a bit further, or if he didn’t have that beard, he would have been in serious trouble.
