WATCH: Near miss as ice hockey puck flies INCHES away from commentator’s head

Pierre McGuire was just doing his job at the game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Tampa Bay Lightning when he came incredibly close to copping a puck to the face.

Of course, being a commentator, sitting so close to the rink and having a puck fly by the face might be an everyday occurrence for him.

Slow-motion footage from the incident shows just how close the puck got to his face, flying literally inches away from his head.

If he had been sitting any closer to the rink or failed to move, the puck would have caused considerable physical harm.

This was a very close call indeed.
