A long-time L.A. Kings fan and season ticket holder got pucked up before Tuesday’s opener. A slap shot cleared the boards and smacked the guy in the face, cracking his nose and cutting his forehead. Jeremy Aaronson, the fan, attended the game at Crypto.com Arena with his 11-year-old son.
TMZ reports, Aaronson and his son were standing behind the glass before the first period. They were watching the Los Angeles Kings warm up before their game against the Vegas Golden Knights. That’s when a Kings player fired a shot that sailed right into Jeremy’s nose, breaking it.
Aaronson was treated in the arena by medics. However, his injuries required care from a doctor at the hospital. As a result, instead of watching the game live and in person, Jeremy was forced to ride in the back of an ambulance and watch it on his phone.
Jeremy’s son, thankfully, was able to stay and watch the game with friends who happened to be at the arena. Jeremy told the outlet that he saw a specialist on Wednesday and that the doctor told him his nose was broken. Once the swelling has subsided, Aaronson will require more treatment from the nose doctor.
The puck also cut Jeremy’s forehead. He is living proof that not everything goes as planned. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
