    Actor Alan Thicke Hurt by Flying Hockey Puck

    Actor Alan Thicke Hurt by Flying Hockey Puck

    Wednesday, April 23, 2003 9:22 p.m. ET

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Never mind "Growing Pains." This must have really hurt. Alan Thicke , the Canadian-born actor best known as a TV dad on the hit comedy "Growing Pains," lost five teeth and required 30 stitches after getting hit with a hockey puck.

    "I won't be playing any leading man roles in the next couple of months," Thicke said in a statement issued by spokesman Jerry Digney.

    Digney said the 56-year-old Thicke was playing hockey alongside actor Michael Vartan , who plays a CIA agent on the ABC drama "Alias," and was not wearing proper headgear when he took an errant puck to the face.

    The spokesman said Thicke, who is working on an updated version of his book "How Men Have Babies," will need extensive dental work and possibly cosmetic surgery to repair the damage.

    Yeah, but will he have to walk around for a few days with that enormous head gear? Wowza.

    I've always liked Alan Thicke.. though I'm not sure what it is I find appealing about him.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I'm so cruel. This made me laugh. I think Thicke is a total dork.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    I laughed, but only the vision in my head of Michael Vartan sizing up Thicke across the ice, and then putting one right in his face.

    I don't know if Vartan was the guilty party, but it made for a funny visual.

    And that, kiddies, is why you should always wear the proper headgear.

    I have to agree. Wonder if Alan will do any safety type commercials?

    If he does, he should record the commercials right now while he's at the peak of hideousness. That would ensure his message is received at maximal effectiveness.

    Alan Thicke IS a dork. The thought of him with a helmet and a contraption on like Sundin had is funny stuff.

    Don't let this happen to you....

    Why couldn't this have happened at the beginning of his career -- say, just before the biggest audition of his life?

    Worst export from Canada ever.
