Alexander Ovechkin is crazy, in that hockey player sort of way. After taking a puck to the face, he tweeted out these before-and-after photos of his chin.

The injury took place during a Caps practice Thursday morning, according to The Washington Post, and it required a fairly massive 22 stitches, according to Ovi’s own tweet.

You’ve got to love hockey players — these dudes are out of their minds, in the best kind of way.
