Mitch Callahan is a gritty, hard-working prospect for the Detroit Red Wings currently plying his trade in the American League for Grand Rapids. He won a bronze medal with Team USA at the 2011 world juniors, a Western League title with Kelowna in 2009 and a Calder Cup with the Griffins last year.

So of course his biggest moment in the spotlight is going to come from getting a slapshot right in the mouth. Callahan tweeted out a picture of the aftermath and it is not for the squeamish. If you're not eating, take a look.

Yikes.
