WATCH: Jenner, hit by puck, returns wearing full cage

Alright, so you're Boone Jenner.

In the first period of tonight's game, you're doing your job and headed toward the opposition's net when an errant puck deflects directly into your mouth.

Making matters worse? It's Monday.

Making them even worse? A puck to the mouth hurts (a lot, and this is coming from someone who tweets for a living), and it resulted in the loss of a few teeth and about 20 stitches, according to Blue Jackets assistant coach Brad Larsen.

He didn't just call it a night, either - and honestly, that was probably expected given the gruesome scene as Jenner arrived at the bench in the first period. Jenner got stitched up, slapped a full cage on his helmet and rejoined his teammates midway through the second period.

What a gamer.
