If their was ever any doubt how tough hockey players are, this will settle it once and for all, and it is pretty gross.

Ryan Reaves of the St. Louis Blues Pro Hockey team, collided on the ice with a player from the Chicago Blackhawks right into the glass. It was a brutal hit from behind, but once Ryan got up and headed to the bench, that is the real story.

A cameraman caught Ryan pulling out his own loose tooth. What? Is this commonplace among hockey players? This is a permanent tooth we are talking about, not a baby tooth and he just yanks it out like no big deal. I think a mouth guard is in order for this guy.
