On a day that is all about the love for the game of hockey. Some of the dangers of playing the game we love made a presence in the 2nd period.
Jason Zucker took a high hit from Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival and was very slow to get up. Clearly shaken up on the play, during the replay you could see how hard his head hit the ice due to how he fell after receiving the hit. The good news was that he was able to get up and skate off the ice with some help from the trainers.
So far their is no more news on the injury, obviously it will be an "upper body" injury but we all can figure he is going through the NHL concussion protocol. Hopefully he will be ok and back in the lineup soon.
Take care Jason.
