After a weird puck bounce in the Columbus Blue Jackets’ first-round series, rookie defenseman Zach Werenski found himself with a broken orbital bone, broken sinus cavity, and 18 fugly stitches.
Werenski’s misfortune was canonized (see what I did there?) in a gnarly selfie which then itself became a viral story for a Blue Jackets fan. Jay Shrub received national attention and a free Zach Werenski jersey after turning the photo into a very beautiful shirt.
Now Werenski has one of his own.
