X-ray shows Rangers’ Jimmy Vesey lost a tooth… in his lip

Watch as Jimmy Vesey is cut after taking the skate of Zack Kassian to the face.

If you were watching Saturday’s matinee matchup between the New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers, you probably saw the scary encounter between Zack Kassian‘s skate and Jimmy Vesey‘s face. (If you didn’t, you can watch the play at the top of this post.)

Thankfully, Vesey was OK and was able to skate off the ice with a bloody lip. We later learned that he lost a few teeth in the collision, too.
