Shoutout Gone Wrong

December 23, 2007

From this morning’s Buffalo News:

Winger Ales Kotalik took about 20 stitches to his forehead when he was struck by a puck during warmup. Paul Gaustad took a shot that bounced off the crossbar and nailed Kotalik.

“The cut was almost down to my skull,” he said.

Goose, I do appreciate that you were trying to send me a Christmas shout out by having a shot go off the crossbar, but injuring Kotalik while doing so is not a good way to go about it. Please keep that in mind for future shout outs.
