Mia Khalifa, a former porn actress, has a one-of-a-kind and painful keepsake from this year’s NHL playoffs.
An errant hockey puck slammed into the self-proclaimed DC Sports Girl’s left bre-st when she was cheering on her Washington Capitals from rink-side seats at a playoff game.
Mia has announced that she will have surgery to repair her bre-st at the start of next year.
“I was sitting behind the glass during a game, and it came shooting over the glass and it caught me so off guard and I had no idea it was coming,” the American-Lebanese hottie told the Daily Star.
“I grabbed my chest and I didn’t want to let go, because I felt like if I did let go, blood was going to be everywhere.
“I got to take it home, it was the single greatest souvenir any hockey fan can get: a game-used puck that comes at you and hits you.
“They’re really heavy, it’s pure rubber, they go at about 80 mph. My left bre-st is slightly deflated now and I will be getting it fixed next year.”
“I’ve seen my team lose before, that’s a lot more painful,” she responded when asked about her most unpleasant sports-related incident.
“It is a self-diagnosed injury that occurred as she described in her Instagram post from May,” a source for Khalifa tells PEOPLE.
“I got hit in the b–b with a puck during the game, and I’m 80% sure it ruptured an implant,” the Sportsball podcast co-host, who grew up playing hockey and lacrosse in Washington, posted to her 8.9 million Instagram followers following the event.
“But the good news is, I got a game used puck from a Capitals Stanley cup playoff game. Worth it.”
Khalifa’s new program, Sportsball, premiered last month, and she says it’s aimed for those who “don’t take themselves too seriously.”
There’s more good news, too: her Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup and were crowned NHL champions.
