Bruins’ Jakub Lauko shares incredible photo of his busted-up face
Jakub Lauko is, in fact, a hockey player.
The 23-year-old Bruins forward has now played 29 NHL games and appears poised to play a big role among the team’s bottom-six forwards in the 2023-24 season. But despite being an established professional at the NHL level, Lauko has never had better proof of his status as a hockey player than this.
Lauko shared a photo on his Twitter page Friday, showing off a nice fat eye contusion and stitched-up face following a scary-looking injury during Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Lauko took a skate blade to the face as he got tangled up with the Blackhawks’ Jason Dickinson. The immediate spritz of blood from Lauko’s face was alarming.
But fortunately, we can now have a laugh about the whole thing, because Lauko and his eye are fine. You can see the photo he shared below. We’ll give you a friendly warning, in case you’re squeamish about stitches and/or bad face injuries.

Lauko even joked about a “modeling career [definitely] in jeopardy” with the photo. He’s known for having a jovial personality, so no surprise there.
Hockey fans and those who have been around the game in their lives should appreciate Lauko’s photo. It’s almost like a badge of honor for hockey players to take a puck or a stick or a SKATE to the face and get back to the ice with a nice shiner.
It’s always extra-concerning when you’re talking about skate blades and cuts in the head/neck area. But it’s good to see that Lauko will just need to sit out this week and get back to action soon. With an outstanding fresh battle scar.
