Hockey player Richard Zednik is in stable condition at an ICU after having his carotid artery sliced by a skate blade while playing last weekend. I'm not big on hockey, but I am a huge fan of carotid arteries. Especially keeping them intact and patent. The video is not explicit, they wisely avoid showing a lot of blood. Watch the end to see the freak accident that caused it. I hope he recovers without permanent neurological damage.
