Longtime ESPN employee Linda Cohn is suing a hockey arena after a group of kids playing in the venue's arcade allegedly knocked over a "coin change machine" that cut her arm.

Cohn, a 54-year-old former collegiate hockey goalie who has been with the all-sports TV channel since 1992, filed a lawsuit against Brewster Ice Arena in Brewster, N.Y., over the March incident.

She required 25 stitches to sew up a gash on her arm. According to the New York Daily News, Cohn claims in the suit she suffered "severe and disabling injuries" and months later "continues to endure great pain and suffering."

Cohn was attending an American Hockey League game at the time as part of a promotional appearance.

She is seeking an unspecified amount of money from Brewster.
