It was a very scary moment for fans of the Montreal Canadiens last night, and especially so for those live in attendance at the Bell Centre.
The Canadiens star defenseman P.K. Subban, was injured on what appeared to be a relatively minor impact, but there was no doubt about the seriousness of his injury after he lay on the ice for several minutes, behavior certainly not characteristic of Subban who has not missed a game in over three years. It's still unclear what exactly happened to Subban, but the latest update from the team's vice president of public relations does sound somewhat reassuring.
“He suffered a neck injury and he has been taken to hospital for further tests but he was able to communicate with the doctors and he was able to move,” said Donald Beauchamp, as per the Montreal Gazette's Pat Hickey.
The Canadiens also provided a minor update on social media, letting fans know that Subban was able to move his extremities, and although we still don't know the extent of his injury, this also seems like a positive sign.
For those of you who missed the incident, we've included the video below.
