At the Washington Capitals practice today, video coach Brett Leonhardt stood in as the goalie. And by the looks of the damage caused, Leonhardt took a direct hit. One can only hope the cup performed as advertised or else Leonhardt would be in a world of pain no man wants to imagine.

Ouch.

Thanks to Deadspin for the find and James Heuser for the photo.
