When a normal person, or even a normal athlete, gets a laceration on his stomach, he is likely to bandage it up go see a doctor. But in most cases, he will stop playing.
Hockey players aren't normal people. Take, for example, Brayden Schenn.
In the second period of the Philadelphia Flyers' 3-2 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils, Schenn was inadvertently sliced in the torso by the skate of Dainius Zubrus. Schenn came back and scored the game-winning goal. No big deal.
