A frequent comment by both hockey announcers and fans, after a player is bashed into the ice or the sideboards.
In the United States it is often spoken in a whispered voice, in sympathy for the bashed player, as in:
"gosh, wow, that's gotta hurt."

In Canada, or among more hardcore hockey fans, it is shouted, gleefully, in sincere respect

"Man, that's gotta hurt!"

For the best example of this watch Hockey night in Canada or rent some Don Cherry tapes.

also, for those who didn't know: Scott Stevens rules.
