    I was just out of High School and my father took me to a Sabres game when they were playing the Blues...We had seats behind and to the right of the goal... One of the most messed up things I have seen as a teen.

    Yeah, that was crazy, would've been terrifying seeing that as a kid

    I had heard he tried to commit suicide twice after that. One time he shot himself but the bullet ricocheted off his molars and tore some of his tongue off, then embedded in his sinus

    I do remember when Richard Zednik got a blade to the throat. I was to young when Malarchuck got it.

    Ironic how the Sabres were involved in both Malarchuk and Zednik accidents. A bladed weapon.

    Thankfully the team trainer was an army medic from Vietnam and know how to handle it. He could have died on the ice.

    Probably the worst injury/accident I have ever seen in pro sports. I watched a clip of it the day it happened; I've made a point not to view it again ever since.

    And no, I didn't watch the embedded clip.

    What was the fucked up part was Malarchuk had serious OCD and he couldn't get over the incident because of it.

    He admits later that he did try and kill himself after Zednick incident cause his OCD kicked right back in and made him think terrible thoughts.
