Pierre McGuire was in the space between benches in Columbus as the Blue Jackets hosted the Tampa Bay Lightning. What he didn’t expect was to be in the line of fire as a puck was flying through the air.
There’s noplace safe from a flying puck at a hockey rink. This was demonstrated as the puck nearly took out an unsuspecting Pierre McGuire as he broadcasted on NBCSports Monday night.
If he had been hit by the puck, it would have hurt. How bad? He’s not wearing a helmet, so it’s safe to say it would have been bad. Don’t believe us? Watch the video clip!
We’re glad he’s safe, and will broadcast another day!
