Hansen calls mid-game collapse ‘a quick nap on the bench’

Vancouver forward Jannik Hansen addressed a scary-looking situation with some levity on Monday, calling his mid-game collapse against Calgary over the weekend a “quick nap on the bench.”

Watch here:

Hansen, 28, slumped over on the Vancouver bench following a heavy hit from Flames d-man Dennis Wideman. Teammates frantically called for medical attention upon seeing Hansen collapse, but he quickly came to before a physician arrived.

The Danish forward didn’t return to the game and missed Sunday’s practice, but will be back in the lineup tonight when the Canucks host the Coyotes at Rogers Arena. Hansen has eight goals and 13 points in 32 games this season.
