As much as I love the game (ball) hockey can be a painful and physically demanding game even if it's just pickup fun competitive sport. Going to the slot after passing the ball to the far point looking for a deflection I got sticked in the face. Post accident I found out it was the butt end of the goalie's stick as he moved to make the save. The stick impacted me above the eye on the top of the eye socket adjacent to the bridge of the nose. Snapped my head back pretty good !
