In Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw took a puck to the face in the first period that gave him a huge gash and left him sprawled on the ice.
Shaw received stitches and returned to the game in the second period to help lead the Blackhawks to a dramatic victory to take the Stanley Cup over the Boston Bruins.
UPDATE: Monday, August 26, 1:54 p.m. ET
According to Yahoo! Sports, Shaw's stitches have sold for $6,500, with all of the profits benefiting the V Foundation for cancer research.
End of Update---
Shaw is continuing to ride the wave of Cup excitement by auctioning off the stitches he received on his face, which will come with a framed, signed photo. All of the profits will go to the V Foundation for cancer research.
While the injury is not pleasant to remember (warning: not for the squeamish), it's a great cause and the definition of making lemonade out of lemons. Get ready to start bidding, Blackhawks fans.
