Minnesota's Vinni Lettieri Blocks Slapper with Head

Minnesota got the sweep of its series with Notre Dame this weekend, taking Friday night's decision 5-0, then coming up with a 4-2 win on Sunday, but the weekend was not without loss.

Gophers' forward Vinni Lettieri took a puck to the head off the stick of Irish d-man Robbie Russo and went down on the ice immediately afterwards.

Lettieri was not on the bench for the remainder of the game.

The good news is that Lettieri got up and skated off the ice with the help of his teammates, according to SB Nation.
