Justin Schultz lost several teeth and fractured several others. Laviolette: ‘Our docs did a tremendous job of putting him back together.’
Justin Schultz returned to practice on Monday for the first time since being hit by a wrist shot from Islanders’ forward Kieffer Bellows. The puck struck the Capitals’ defenseman in the side of the jaw, forcing him to leave the game in the third period. Schultz was classified by the team as out “day-to-day”, but Peter Laviolette admitted, “there was some damage done.”
Monday, 11 days after Schultz was injured, we learned just how badly the puck devastated Schultz’s mouth.
