HOCKEY — 08 February 2013

Having the best seat in the house comes with it’s price.

Late in the second period of Thursday night’s game between the New York Islanders and New York Rangers, MSG’s sideline reporter John Giannone paid the price for having the best seat in the areba when he was hit in the face by a puck!

Giannone barely missed a beat and continued to “be on” for the cameras. Looks like Giannone got the short end of the stick tonight in exchange for that incredible view he gets.

Luckily for John Giannone he was able to tough it out and stay in the game. I’m sure the injury could have been much worse had it have hit him directly in the eye for example, or in his neck.  Sixteen year old Kyle Fundytus  died in 2011 after a puck hit him in the throat during a “freak accident” in Calgary.

Take a look at a clip of him being smoked by the puck and talking with announcers:
