Tyler Seguin suffers grossest, goriest 'paper cut' ever

There's no good way to preface this, so we're going to jump right into it. 

Dallas Stars star Tyler Seguin is third in the NHL in points and was poised to push his team deep into the Stanley Cup Playoffs this spring. 

But Seguin will be out for three or four weeks following an injury to his Achilles tendon in the Stars' game against the Lightning Thursday. 

Friday, Seguin posted a photo of the injury, and we're never going to be the same. 

Yes, it's a slight cut, but think about the severity of it. It's enough to put you in the fetal position. 

Hockey fans are keen to tell the sports world that hockey players are tough by using a variety of terrible memes, but they might have a point after this cringe-worthy tweet.
