Capitals' Brooks Orpik had part of finger sliced off in Stanley Cup Final  4 Days ago

Hockey players are notoriously tough and willing to play through just about any injury they can. Playing through injuries is like a badge of honor, as FTW's Hemal Jhaveri recently detailed in an inside look at the Stanley Cup Final.

Washington Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik, it turns out, is a great example of that.

The Stanley Cup champion revealed to reporters Wednesday that during Game 2 of the finals, part of his pinky finger was severed off. No biggie. It only "kinda fell off," so he had it reattached and kept playing.

Orpik lost part of his finger late in Game 2 when Vegas Golden Knights winger Erik Haula dished out a hard slash. In response, Haula got a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct.

The Caps' defenseman was having a pretty good game before that moment after scoring his first goal in 220 games, a drought that dated back to February 26, 2016.

Wednesday, Orpik explained:

"It probably looked worse than it was to be honest with you. It was tough to look at, but the trainers did a really good job. It was never something that I thought would keep me from playing. … It kinda fell off."

He also said it will not require any extra offseason surgery or attention, though the same can't be said for a hand injury he sustained in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
