Thankfully, Lauko seems in good spirits, cracking a joke about his offputting appearance. From the stitches, it looks like Lauko was centimeters from losing his eye.
Lauko fell on the ice when Dickinson lifted his skate and accidentally poked him near his eye. Lauko immediately rushed off the ice as blood started pouring into his hands.
Here's the play where it happened.
The Bruins defeated the Blackhawks, 3-0, that game. They're 2-0 against the Blackhawks after also defeating them at home for the Hawks' second game of the season.
The Blackhawks don't face the Bruins again this season. But, hopefully, Lauko can return to the ice soon. Head coach Jim Montgomery noted Lauko will miss at least a week of games.
