Heads up! Barry Trotz takes puck to the head in Toronto

Capitals

We all know hockey players are tough, but what about hockey coaches?

Head coach Barry Trotz showed Saturday that he may be the toughest head coach in the NHL as he took a puck to the head inthe very first shift of the game.

Off the opening face off, Nikita Soshnikov redirected a puck into the Caps bench and it ended up hitting Trotz. You can watch it in the video above.

In true hockey fashion, Trotz immediately shrugged it off, though he was patched up on the bench.
