Former NHL goalie Clint Malarchuck is recovering in hospital after he accidentally shot himself in the chin while hunting rabbits. Malarchuk is perhaps most famous for having his throat cut by a skate during a game in 1989.

Malarchuk's wife, Christy, said that the accident happened when he put the gun between his legs, butt first. He was flown to Reno and the Blue Jackets, where he coaches, said: "We are optimistic that will have a full recovery very soon."
