Sabres' Christian Ehrhoff tweets nasty picture of split ear (Photo)

Hockey players are among the toughest athletes in the world so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Christian Ehrhoff had his ear split open in the Buffalo Sabres game against the Philadelphia Flyers that required 40 stitches, but he skated off as if he was in the midst of your routine line change.

Here’s your warning that these images are graphic and may not exactly be what you want to see before you eat lunch this afternoon, so now that you’ve been warned, here’s the images that Ehrhoff shared on his Twitter account.

Now cue the jokes about how long LeBron James would be out of action with the Miami Heat if he suffered a similar injury or how the defenseman almost became Christian “Ear-off.”
