On March 25, San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture took a nasty puck to the mouth in a game against the Nashville Predators, knocking out multiple teeth and costing him the remainder of the regular season.

While the 28-year-old Couture made it back in time for the NHL playoffs, he went to Instagram to show everyone the physical damage that followed the incident.

Ouch. Couture did wear a full protective cage in his return, but ditched it a few games into the playoff series—typical of a badass hockey player.

Amazingly, Couture was able to score two goals in Game 4’s 7-0 victory, though the Sharks were eventually eliminated in six games.

Sure, the season is over for Couture, but I’m sure the fans appreciate the man’s toughness.
