Ryan Reaves is proof that ice hockey players are the toughest sportsmen

The St. Louis Blues winger was left with a loose tooth after a bust up on the ice but rather than seek dental help he just pulled the hanging molar out and carried on playing.

Reaves was viciously knocked to the ice by The Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook on Sunday, resulting in a little impromptu dental surgery on the sidelines.

We now know he has nerves of steel, but his gums probably aren't too strong at the moment.
