Mike Green slap shot destroys Tampa Bay’s Nate Thompson’s visor, draws blood

nate thompson shattered visor

This, Gamedayr Nation, is exactly why hockey players wear visors.

A Mike Green slap shot came off the stick hot and hit Nate Thompson right in the visor, completely destroying it.

Luckily it seems as if Thompson is going to be ok, minus some blood loss (hopefully there’s no broken bones in his face). It could have turned out to be a lot worse.

Following is a video, GIF, and photos of the devastation.
