Getzlaf bears unsightly playoff scars for world to see

Say hello to my little friend.

Ryan Getzlaf. Two-time Gold Medallist. Stanley Cup Champion. Captain. Hockey player.

He took a puck to the face on Wednesday night in Game 1 and plans to play in Game 2 on Friday.

In a text message exchange today, he sent me this photo of the damage.

I told Getzlaf that, "I'm definitely more handsome" than he is at this point.

He responded with, "maybe I can be a hand model".

He's definitely a model. A model of toughness. A model of a leader. A model of one tough dude.
