Vancouver Canuck defenseman Sami Salo blocked a slapshot with his crotch in a playoff game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Salo is recovering and taking inventory at a Chicago hospital.  In lieu of flowers, please send your thoughts to his testicle's Facebook fan page.

The announcer said Salo "took that one in a bad spot." Well, sure, now it is.

It is amusing the care that was taken to prevent the camera from intruding as Salo was loaded onto the ambulance, only to have his testicle splattered all over the internet in a matter of hours.


Looks like a scene from Wagner…
