Concussed Hockey Player Keeps Attempting Triple Axels During Game

Published Friday, December 9th, 2016

San Jose Sharks captain Joe Pavelski confused everyone in the home crowd by leaping into the air, twirling around three and a half times, and stumbling to the ground in the middle of a playoff game, sources report. “Joe was playing well initially, but then he took big hit to the head after scoring the game-tying goal,” explained coach Peter DeBoer, as Pavelski started spinning in circles for no apparent reason. “After easily passing the NHL-mandated concussion protocol, he really changed the sport he was playing. Physically though, he seems fine. Sure, he’s a bit off-balance and is slurring his words but still, have you ever seen such graceful skating in a professional hockey game?” At press time, a disgruntled fan called for an ambulance on Pavelski’s behalf.
