P.K. Subban has been released from the hospital following a neck injury suffered last night in Buffalo.
Subban was injured when his defensive partner Alexei Emelin accidentally collided with the side of his head. The 26-year old was taken off the ice on a stretcher and transported to an area hospital. Video of the incident is below. Subban seemed to signal that he was ok while being stretchered off.
Earlier today, the Canadiens announced via Twitter that Subban’s neck injury was deemed non-serious and he was released from the hospital late last night.
After comprehensive testing, P.K. Subban was released from the Montreal General Hospital late last night.

P.K. Subban Ruled Out for Saturday Night
Per Canadiens’ head coach Michel Therrien, Subban will not play on Saturday night when the Canadiens face the Minnesota Wild at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Tomorrow’s contest will mark the first time in Subban’s seven-year career that he has missed due to injury.
Therrien also stated that the Canadiens would likely recall a forward and defenseman from St. John’s, their AHL affiliate. There’s no indication yet who those individuals will be.
Montreal is currently tied for fifth place in the Atlantic Division with the Ottawa Senators, five points behind the fourth place Red Wings.
