He Shoots…He Takes a Bullet to the Dome


Clint Malarchuk currently works as a goalie coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets but he is most famous for a 1989 game with the Buffalo Sabres when he had his throat slashed with a skate while playing in net. The other day, after a tough day shooting rabbits with a rifle Malarchuk had another head related injury. He shot himself. In the chin.

Malarchuk’s wife Christy told sheriff’s deputies that the .22-calibre rifle discharged after her husband placed the butt on the ground between his legs. He had been shooting rabbits.

The 47-year-old former player, now a goalie coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets, was flown by helicopter to a Reno hospital for treatment Tuesday.

Wow, how many awful head and throat related injuries can a man suffer through. It makes me think of Olympic wrestler Rulon Gardner. Police are apparently investigating now to see if it was a suicide attempt or merely an accident. I’d hope it wasn’t a suicide attempt, a .22 is a shitty way to try and take yourself out, it’s like a glorified BB gun.
