A scary moment took place late in the game between the Montreal Canadiens and Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
While going into the corner to battle for the puck, Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban lost his balance while chasing down Marcus Foligno of the Sabres. As he fell, his head collided with the lower body of teammateAlexei Emelin. Subban’s neck then bent in a way that no human neck should bend, leading to him falling to the ice and immediately throwing off his gloves in pain.
Subban remained down on the ice for nearly 10 minutes as medical personnel attended to him. He ultimately was taken out on a stretcher, and is being transported to a local hospital as of this writing.
SocialMediaMorning.com will be looking for updates on the matter and keep our readers posted. Hopefully the actions of the medical team were nothing more than precautionary, and that Subban, one of the game’s best players, isn’t going to be out for too long.
The Canadiens won the game 3-2 over the Sabres, though the result of the game is the furthest thing from the minds of anyone right now.
