NHL’s Matt Hendricks Takes a Slapshot Right in the ‘Stanley Cup’ (Video)

That’s one way to block a shot.

During an NHL game on Thursday, Edmonton Oilers center Matt Hendricks made the ultimate sacrifice for his team by taking a slapshot straight to the groin.

Hendricks collapsed immediately after taking the hit and had to be helped off the ice. According to one of the announcers, he also collapsed on his way back to the locker room.

The impact was so devastating that it broke the athletic cup he was wearing (see photos below). “Id like to thank Bike & @RussellAthletic for saving my bacon tonight!” said Hendricks, a father of two, in a photo caption.

We’re sure any future children will thank them too.
