I suppose it's a well known job hazard, but wow!

See what happened to Daniel Alfredsson during Tuesday night's game.

Veteran Detroit Red Wings player Daniel Alfredsson took a high stick to the face, courtesy of Andrei Loktionov during Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils.
In the video below, you can watch the 41 year-old Red Wing literally look for and pick up his teeth on the ice.

Game officials did not call a penalty and Alfredsson came back to play in the third period.

He also scheduled a dentist appointment for first thing Wednesday morning.

Adding insult to injury...the Devils won by 1, with a final score of Wings-3, Devils-4.
