Rangers Klein Reattaches Ear, Scores Winning Goal

Rangers Klein Reattaches Ear, Scores Winning Goal

New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein offered the definite proof that hockey players are indeed the toughest athletes. He lost part of his ear during Monday night’s game only to have it sewn back on and return to score the game winning goal.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Sill high-sticked Klein in the ear in the first period. He lost a lot of blood, but walked into the locker room to receive stitches. The team doctor used thirteen stitches.

“That’s a first for me,” he said. “Haven’t been hit in the ear like that. Pain’s only temporary.”

Klein received the Broadway Hat, which is given to the top player of the night. However, he passed it on to Chris Falzone, 15, who was signed to a one-day contract with the Rangers. The team awarded the young cancer survivor a contract through the Garden of Dreams Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New jersey.
