The Winnipeg Jets are on the verge of going down 3-1 to the Colorado Avalanche, but now, all thoughts are with a top Jets star after an incredibly scary moment.

It's well established by now that hockey is one of the most dangerous sports in the world, and while players have to keep an eye on their opponents and their skates, perhaps the most dangerous object of all is the puck. Unfortunately, that was found out the hard way on Sunday as Jets star Vlad Namestnikov went down after taking a brutal Nate Schmidt slap shot to the face.
Namestnikov was helped off the ice after the incident, and didn't return to the ice after it, leaving him in doubt for game five of this tightly contested series.
We've seen players return quickly after such moments, but we've also seen this effect players to the point where they are out for significant stretches, so stay tuned for updates on the veteran forward.
