Christian Ehrhoff of the Buffalo Sabres tweeted three images showing his ear after a puck sliced it open during Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The 31-year-old German-born Ehrhoff (pronounced ear off?) needed 40 stitches to repair his butchered ear and proudly shared the before, during and after images with his 28,000 Twitter followers.
"WARNING, graphic images! #pucktoear #about40stitches #toughdayattheoffice #greatjobdoc," he wrote above the pictures.

Buffalo lost again, 5-2, and the injury must be better than the ear-splitting boos of Sabres fans this season.
