TOUGH HOCKEY PLAYER ALERT: Nicklas Backstrom Played in The Stanley Cup Finals With a Broken Hand

Another day, another tough ass hockey player. Nicklas Backstrom has been one of the most underrated players in the National Hockey League for YEARS now. Don’t think so? Look at his stats:

I mean, come on man. That’s almost not fair. Backstrom broke his hand earlier in the playoffs and STILL put up 7 points in 5 games.

He has some of the best eyes in the game, as seen on this silky pass.

You could give me 1,000 pucks with two perfectly healthy hands and every single one of the passes would go off the glass and out because of the fourth liner in me. Backstrom on the other hand has the precision of a healthy Aaron Rodgers.

NHL fans, let’s not forget that LeBron James played in the NBA finals with a “probably broken hand” as well. I mean, check this out.

I find it funny when people get all upset at hockey twitter for being a bunch of tough guy/girl hardos. Yeah, we might be, but every other sport definitely isn’t helping their own cause.

Nicklas Backstrom, a god damn warrior.
