    Matt Clement against the Devil Rays Carl Crawford in 2005, took a line drive to the side of his head and never really recovered.

    Also, what about Fred Lynn's crash into the outfield wall that inspired padding to be installed in just about every park but Wrigley?

    Patrice Bergeron last year ( I"m still upset with the lack of response by his teammates for not sticking up for/retaliating against the Flyers), Norm Levielle in the 80's; what about Barry Pederson's arm tumor when he was traded for Cam. Less serious perhaps, but again embarassing in how the Bruins responded was Chris Nilan's butt-ending of Rick Middleton in the face. Similarly, Craig Janney was not quite the same after being high sticked in the playoffs by Dale Hunter...

    Bergeron is in the lineup.

    Tiny Archibald in '80 or '82 in Eastern Conference Finals, I think. Hurting his shoulder in Game 1 against the 76ers.

    Thanks Thomas 1126. Matt Clement was one of the scariest moents in sports injury history--off the bat of Carl Crawford on the Rays. Like Tony C, probably ended his career.

    We also forget football players, who die every year on practice fields in August due to heat exhaustion and young hockey players, who die after a check to theirs hearts.

    Teddy Green of the Boston Bruins


    INDEPTH: THE BERTUZZI INCIDENT10 Hockey Violence Lowlights CBC Sports Online | March 9, 2004


    Wayne Maki fractures Ted Green's skull









    Imagine the worst stick-swinging incident of the modern NHL era, complete with heavy wooden sticks and helmets nowhere in sight.

    Voila, you have St. Louis' Wayne Maki opposite "Terrible" Ted Green of the Boston Bruins, circa 1969-70 in Ottawa.

    In the midst of a pre-season game, Maki knocked Green down from behind. The latter retaliated by slashing Maki, who hit the ice. Maki speared Green, who again sent Maki flying. The pair soon exchanged vicious slashes until Maki clubbed Green over the head, fracturing his skull.

    Green needed three major operations to save his life and had a steel plate inserted in his head. Maki was suspended for 30 days and Green for 12 games when he returned to action one year later. Assault charges were filed against both players, who were later acquitted.

    Troy Brown before Super Bowl 31. A lot of people forget that Brown was a special teams ace that year. The Pats closed to within a TD of Green Bay after Curtis Martin scored on a 21-yard TD. However, Desmond Howard took the following kick-off back for a TD and that destroyed whatever momentum the Pats had gained. Hason Graham, who replaced Troy on special teams, missed a tackle on Howard, and then the refs missed Adam Vinatieri being held by #95 on the Packers. A lot of people forget that Adam ran down Hershel Walker earlier that season on a kick-off, and he may have been tackle Desmond Howard.

    Also, a huge loss was Lyn Dawson in Super Bowl 20. He was injured on the Pats' first drive and he was a great blocking tight end.

    Teddy Green --Coming off of his best season in 1969 (for which he was named to the Second All-Star Team), Green was involved in an infamous incident in an exhibition game in Ottawa versus the St. Louis Blues on September 21, 1969, engaging in a bloody stick fight with Blues' forward Wayne Maki. Green was struck in the head, suffering a fractured skull and brain damage, and missing the remainder of the 1970 season, during which Boston won the Stanley Cup.

    Back in the early 60s there was a kid playing hockey (defenseman) for BU - can't remember his name. He was very good - and at least against Harvard (the only times I saw him play) he didn't came off the ice only every second or third time there was a line change - maybe even less than that. I think he was credited with something like 58 minutes against BC one night. He was paralyzed after a bad fall on a trampoline - only a sophomore

    How about Pats' QB Jim Plunkett's injury in 1975 that led to the emergence of Steve Grogan and a few good years for the Pats that included two trips to the playoffs?
