Granola bar cross-checks Alexandre Burrows; Canuck’s front tooth gets chipped
You would think Alexandre Burrows would have his biting technique down by now.
The Vancouver Canucks right wing — most famous around Boston for chomping down on Patrice Bergeron’s finger during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final — apparently still has some work to do in that department.
The Canucks’ official Twitter account posted a photo early Thursday morning of Burrows with a chipped front tooth — not an uncommon injury for hockey players. The chip wasn’t the result of a stick, puck or fist to the face, though. Nope, the cause of Burrows’ now-crooked smile was the dreaded granola bar.
Wasn't a stick, wasn't a puck. It was a granola bar. Still, all smiles for Burr. pic.twitter.com/FHZpr3shXj
