    I don't have a link yet, heard it on the radio on the drive in to work. It was two small schools playing I believe. Player got his pinky stuck in two facemasks somehow. They took of his glove to inspect the damage only to find the tip of his finger severed.

    They put it on ice, shot him up with a pain killer and he finished the game! Apparently it was his choice whether to get it sewn back on then or after the game, he elected to keep playing.

    Pretty freaking tough.

    Thanks for the link. Guess I was way off, Vtech is not a small school, don't know where I got that detail.

    It was only a flesh wound.
