Just 48 hours after suffering a traumatic skate blade injury to the face, Jakub Lauko has fearlessly revealed images of his injuries. A warning: these images are not for the faint of heart.

This unfortunate incident occurred without any malicious intent on the part of Jason Dickinson of the Chicago Blackhawks; it was an agonizing accident.


Lauko's present eye condition is profoundly distressing, with his eye swollen shut and stitches perilously close to the eyeball. While Boston coach Jim Montgomery assured that the skate blade didn't touch the eyeball, it was a close call.



Recovery remains uncertain, as a fracture in the bone surrounding the eye requires at least a week for the swelling to subside before doctors can offer a comprehensive prognosis. It's crucial to note that Lauko had played 29 NHL games before this injury struck.
