A scary situation unfolded in Columbus on Tuesday night before the Blue Jackets-Oilers game as young Edmonton standout Taylor Hall was cut by a skate during warmups.

The incident occurred after Hall, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, fell to the ice directly in the path of his teammate, defenseman Corey Potter.

As Potter attempted to jump over Hall in an effort to avoid him, his skate came down on Hall's face resulting in a cut above his eye.

This is what it looked like:



The Oilers have yet to announce the severity of the injury, but Hall did not play in the game.

The Oilers are already without two of their other young Stars, forwards Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, due to injury.

Hall was really lucky, if that skate hit his jugular he could have died.
