New York Islanders captain John Tavares had some major issues with his teeth during the second period of Friday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Via an article by Charlie Roumeliotis of CSN Chicago, Tavares took a punch earlier in the period causing him to lose a few teeth. In typical hockey-player fashion, he decided to yank a loose one out of his mouth on his own.
