Hockey players are tough. They get checked into boards, punched in the face, and dressed in locker rooms that smell like the inside of a tauntaun. In fact, the only thing tougher than a hockey player might be the puck they play with.

If you don't believe me, then check out this YouTube video where Dr. Jeff Evans tests how much pressure a puck can handle by putting it in an electronic, vice-like object. The answer? 80,000 pounds. Don't try this at home, kids. [SportsGrid]
