This one looked like it really, really hurt.

Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrej Nestrasil was injured on Thursday night after he was the victim of a big time shoulder to shoulder hit from Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri.

It was a good clean hit from Kadri, but it was the way Nestrasil impacted with the boards that seemed to cause most of the damage, with his lower back appearing to be the primary point of impact. Nestrasil was clearly in a great deal of pain as he struggled to get up to his feet, and unsurprisingly he would exit the contest after the fact.

Here's the video.
