Senators defenceman Marc Methot suffered a gruesome injury to a finger on his left hand in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Ottawa on Thursday.
With 5:22 left in the first period and both teams playing 4-on-4, Methot skated up ice with the puck and was slashed on the hands by Penguins captain Sidney Crosby before shooting the puck into the corner.
Methot removed his glove following the slash to reveal a bloody finger and skated off the ice straight to the dressing room.
No penalty was assessed on the play.
The Senators announced Methot would not return to the game after suffering a laceration.
