Joe Sakic loses fight with snowthrower, breaks three fingers

See? This is what happens when one doesn’t follow safety precautions.
Snowthrower blades are dangerous. There’s a reason the power shuts off when the user lets go of the handle. If the snowthrower jams on a piece of hard snow or ice, sticking one’s finger in there to clear the blockage is fine if the power is off. If the blades resume spinning immediately, that’s asking for trouble.

I salute multimillionaire and future Hall of Famer Sakic, who plays for the Avalanche, for clearing his own driveway in suburban Denver. But please, Joe, be careful next time. If he had been wearing his hockey gloves, this probably would not have happened!
