1989: Goalie Clint Malarchuk of the Buffalo Sabres suffers a near-fatal injury when another player's skate accidentally severs his carotid artery during a game against the St. Louis Blues. Malarchuk needed 300 stitches, yet he spent only one night in the hospital. He returned to practice four days later.
