Early in the third period, play stopped as NHL legend Teemu Selanne was face-first on the ice behind the Flyers net. As he lifted his head, blood was clearly coming from his face but it was hard to see what happened until the replay.
As the puck went into the corner Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn reached out for it as Selanne came in from his left and Emerson Etem sped in from the right. Etem hit Schenn's stick with his shoulder sending the stick whipping around Schenn right into Selanne's mouth.
The Anaheim Ducks announced that Selanne had "lost several teeth" and was dealing with a "swollen jaw" and did not return to the ice playing just 10:12 on Tuesday night.
The play was accidental and Schenn clearly had no vicious intent. No penalty was called on the ice for high-sticking and, as fate would have it, the Ducks went on to dominate the third period and beat the Flyers 3-2.
