No permanent damage.

That's the report from the Detroit Red Wings on the team's forward, Drew Miller. Miller's face was cut open in a freak accident during Tuesday night's game against the Ottawa Senators.

The game between the Red Wings and Senators was briefly stopped after the injury during a face-off early in the first period.

The ref dropped the puck to the right of the Red Wings goal and the Senators' Mark Stone extended his body to reach for it, raising his leg behind him. At the same time, Miller was also leaning in to make a play for the loose puck.

Stone's skate blade-raked across Miller's eye, cutting open his face:
