What a way to go out.

Team Canada will be without Tyson Barrie for the remainder of the IIHF World Championships in Paris and Cologne, after the Avalanche defenceman suffered a leg laceration.

While his injury is nothing to laugh at, the way he did it is pretty hilarious.

Yes, you read right. Barrie is out of the tournament after wrestling with a teammate at his hotel room in Paris.

This has to be a frustrating end to the hockey season for the native of Victoria. Barrie suffered through a dreadful season with the Colorado Avalanche, who were the worst team in the NHL by a wide margin in 2016-17.

Now, Barrie’s season is over just as he was experiencing some success. The 25-year-old had two goals and five assists with Canada through three games, all of them wins.
