A collection of the latest news from around the world of hockey:
It wasn’t a hit from behind into the boards. It wasn’t a leaping elbow. But the sight of P.K Subban leaving the ice on a stretcher put a sinking feeling in everyone’s stomach. It was a bizarre play. A fluke. Nobody’s fault. I really hope P.K is alright. [The Hockey News], [Big Story], [Yahoo]
#canadiens PK Subban was released from General Hospital last night. Neck injury. Good news is its not a serious one.
