Islanders' Adam Pelech takes skate blade to the face (VIDEO)

Sharp objects and slippery surfaces are never a good combination but, when it comes to hockey, the two are just part of the game.

And nobody realizes that more then New York Islanders defenseman Adam Pelech. Especially after the young player chased down New York Rangers center Derek Stepan after a defensive zone turnover and came up with a nasty cut from Stepan's foot Gitsu.

Stepan was racing to the net as a fallen Pelech swiped at the puck only to have his face make contact with the inadvertent skate.

Pelech did leave the bench for a portion of the period, but managed to return — thankful that it wasn't a whole lot worse.
