As if to add injury to insult, Winnipeg Jets' coach Paul Maurice got hit by a puck during Thursday night's loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He stayed behind the bench for the rest of the game, sporting a gash on his forehead.

CBC's Jets blogger Jeff Hamilton said Maurice was in visible pain but still quipped about the incident, saying he “felt just great.”
