Mitch Callahan couldn't wait to show off his ice hockey war wound from a puck to the mouth.
Callahan, the Grand Rapids Griffins' second-top goalscorer, was hit in the mouth late in the first period of their 6-1 thrashing of Iowa.
Maybe it was the elation of victory, but Callahan was happy to share the gruesome sight of his bloodied mouth on Twitter.
Twenty-two-year-old centre Callahan was escorted off as a pool of blood coloured the ice and teammates searched for lost teeth.
He then posted an acceptable selfie of the damage from inside the locker room.
