Blackhawks defenseman blocks shot, tweets grotesque leg bruise

sami lepisto

It’s been seven days since the Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated from the postseason by the Phoenix Coyotes, but defenseman Sami Lepisto is still feeling the pain.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Finn posted yesterday to his Twitter account:


“This is why I shouldn’t be blocking slap shots!!” Lepisto tweeted.

Just so we’re clear, this bruise isn’t the culmination of a billion blocks or anything. credits Lepisto with two blocked shots in three playoffs games, one of them coming in the Game 6 elimination contest against the Coyotes.
