NHL referee Chris Rooney gets hit in the head with puck (Video)

For anyone that has never played hockey, a puck to any part of the body is going to hurt due to the fact that a cyclindrical piece of rubber isn't exactly soft.

During last night's Stars/Avalanche game, NHL referee Chris Rooney was minding his own business when a shot by Dallas Jamie Oleksiak got deflected right into his head:

Rooney was taken off the ice after the deflection and after being treated for possible head injury, Chris is believed to be okay.
