Hey #LetsGoPens family. Former Pens player Adam Johnson has been injured (believed to have taken a skate to the neck) while playing in the EIHL for the Nottingham Panthers tonight. No more news as to his condition at this time. Please keep him in your thoughts, really scary pic.twitter.com/rlP2QvjexH

It’s reminiscent of the injury to Sabres goalkeeper Clint Malarchuk, who was saved in extremis several years ago.
For less sensitive souls, we’re unable to find images of Johnson’s injury, but perhaps that’s for the best.
Fans on the scene confessed that it was one of the most horrific scenes they’d seen in their lives .
What’s important now: Adam Johnson’s health. Let’s hope the forward recovers from this nasty injury and, above all, stays alive. Our thoughts are with him tonight.
– What a goal!
ONE OF THE CRAZIEST GOALS YOU’LL EVER SEE 😱
