There was a scary moment for the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

Early on in their match up against the St. Louis Blues, Ottawa forward Mika Zibanejad was struck high with a stick, and although we haven't had any confirmation of this fact, watching the video in slow motion would lead us to believe he was struck somewhere around his eye.

Whatever the injury sustained by Zibanejad it was serious enough that he immediately rushed to the locker room, and was quickly ruled out of the contest by the Senators.

Here's a look at the video, the replay at the very end provides the best angle, where you can clearly see the stick go under the visor.
