It’s not just for reanimating knocked out people in action flicks.
Smelling salts are being used on NHL benches to give the players their own quick wake-me-up.
Nineteen-year-old Mitchell Marner of the Toronto Maple Leafs isn’t old enough to enjoy a beer if he’s playing in the States, but he is more than capable of inhaling hits of smelling salt like a boss.
Here he is taking taking a long draw from
supplier teammate Matt Martin during their 3–2 win over the Red Wings Tuesday night.
One is never enough
