After what seems like the longest summer in NHL history, we are finally BACK, ladies and gents! The 2023-24 season is officially upon us and the first game on the docket was the Tampa Bay Lightning's season opener against the Nashville Predators in Tampa.

While the night should have been an exciting one for all, there was one Predators forward who didn't have the best of nights after being struck in the head by a rocket of a shot from defenseman Tyson Barrie at the end of the 2nd period.
Have a look:
"Bit of a scary moment here as Cody Glass takes a one-timer from the point right off the head. Trainer came out onto the ice and Glass was able to get up under his own power, but needed some help getting off the ice."

Thankfully, Glass was able to get to his feet, but would need help making his way off the ice and down the tunnel. With the advanced stick technology now, players are able to shoot the puck harder than ever before. It's not uncommon to see shots reach the 90-100 mph range, so to see a young player take a shot like that off the head - it can be pretty scary.
Not long ago, we saw a teenaged Russian player die as a result of being struck in the head by a puck, so it's no laughing matter. Here's hoping that Glass is alright and will not miss much time - though I'm sure the Preds will take their time in bringing him back following the head injury.
