McGuire was standing near the Blue Jackets’ bench when a puck was seen flying toward his head. The puck missed his head by mere inches and instead hit an NBC Sports camera.
The 57-year-old longtime hockey expert barely had time to react.
The near-miss was caught on camera.
Still in good spirits, McGuire joked after the play.
“You can’t get involved in the field of play,” he said. “So, keep your hands down.”
