    Actor Alan Thicke struck by hockey puck; loses teeth, gets 30 stitches

    BURBANK (California) April 24 - ``Growing Pains'' TV dad Alan Thicke received 30 stitches and lost five teeth after he was struck by a puck while practicing for a celebrity fund-raising hockey game, his spokesman said Wednesday.

    The 56-year-old actor was skating at a Burbank ice rink Tuesday with ``Alias'' television star Michael Vartan and eight other players when he was hit in the face, Jerry Digney said.

    The actor was treated at a Burbank hospital and was recuperating at his Santa Barbara home, Digney said.

    The Canadian-born actor was practicing for a May fund-raiser in New York for that city's police and fire departments. Thicke, who has played hockey since he was 5, said he still hopes to take part in the game, although the injury may keep him away from work for a while.

    ``I won't be playing any leading men roles in the next couple of months,'' he said. - AP

    Anyways, I wonder if he can replace his teeth or something...

    If the teeth are collected immediately and kept warm and moist (they recommend putting it in your cheek, I believe) and surgery is done soon enough, teeth can sometimes be put back in--if they aren't too badly damaged, of course. They can also actually implant false teeth these days (using, I believe, sapphire screws). This is probably more info than you wanted . . .
    ;)

    Thicke was quoted as saying that he should have known better and he was a bad example to all of the kids--apparently he does a lot of sessions with kids promoting the wearing of protective gear! It's kind of ironic, in a painful way.
    :(

    I also feel bad for him. Sydney Bristow got her teeth replaced when they were pulled out. So why can't he?

    For Sarahmañana? TOTALLY off the subject at hand -- I was just wondering where you found the photos in your "signature"? Specifically, the one where JG is wearing jeans? Those signatures flash too quickly for me and I just wanted to know if I could get a good and better look at that photo of her in the jeans?
