PK Subban released from hospital with "non-serious neck injury"

pk subban neck injury

P.K. Subban has been released from the hospital after suffering what the Montreal Canadiens are calling a “non-serious neck injury.” Subban was stretchered off the ice last night in Montreal, following a collision in the corner with teammate Alexei Emelin.

The scary moment brought back a difficult memory for Habs captain Max Pacioretty. Pacioretty suffered a severe concussion and a non-displaced fractured fourth cervical vertebra in his neck after being hit into a glass partition between the benches by Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara in March 2011.

Fortunately, Subban will not be seriously injured like Pacioretty was. Coach Michel Therrien said:

Every time the doctors rush onto the ice, we’re worried. When it takes a long time and the player ends up leaving on a stretcher, there’s always worry. When I went to see him, he was with the doctors. I had a good talk with them and they assured me that he had movement in his extremities, which is a good thing given the circumstances.
