Not that you needed it, but here is further proof that hockey players are tougher than you are.

After being on the receiving end of a pretty hard hit by Brent Seabrook of the Chicago Blackhawks, the St. Louis Blues' Ryan Reaves had to do a little dental surgery in between shifts during a recent NHL game.

Watch as Reaves casually reaches into his mouth, yanks out a tooth and casually hands it to the trainer behind him on the bench. Ouch.
