Video: Zednik escapes death, barely

Whatever the opposite is of an afternoon palate cleanser, this is it. He’s okay — in the hospital and in stable condition — but he got a slashed carotid for his trouble and just missed having a slashed jugular too.

The video, mercifully, is not very graphic, especially compared to the infamous clip of Clint Malarchuk getting his throat slashed in the crease. It almost looks like there was no blood. There was.
