EDMONTON - Sam Gagner managed to keep his sense of humour in the wake of his broken jaw — which probably isn’t easy during an injury that must hurt like heck when he laughs.

Early during Monday’s game with the Winnipeg Jets, Gagner, who’s scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, sent out a tweet from his hospital bed thanking fans for their support.

He said he was “Excited to come back stronger and hopefully better looking” and attached a gruesome photo of his damaged face.

Not pretty.

Hence the surgery.
