It must be a goalie thing.
That was my first thought when reading through an e-mail from Brendan Pound titled "I'm the guy that Kari tried to kill." Pound was the fan who caught a puck in the face standing along the boards Friday for warm ups before the Dallas Stars took on the Vancouver Canucks.
You can get a video of the incident, which was featured on TSN, here on Puck Daddy.
Near the end of the e-mail, which you can find after the jump, Pound reveals he's a goalie for a recreational team in Seattle, so he's used to having pucks flying at his face, just usually with a mask on. Since the puck that hit him was shot by none other than Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen, that adds another layer of amusement to the whole thing.
As for the woman who tried to swipe the towel Lehtonen got for him, the two had never met before, but a Vancouver native named Lindsay did post this on Twitter Friday night.
This is the "towel stealer" from pre-game. All over TSN. Could u hook me back up with the bloody nose guy? I feel like s**t.
Brendan said he saw the Tweet and tried to respond.
I've never used Twitter in my LIFE - no idea how to work it but I did create and account and try to reply to her that I was ok... not sure if it worked ><
Hey, no harm, no foul, right?
Brendan's full story in his own words after the jump.
