Video: Scary fall for Olli Maatta after Nino Niederreiter hit

29 Comments

Olli Maatta is a young player, but he’s already dealt with some seriously bad injury luck.

(And health luck, really, considering his cancer scare.)

Tuesday presented his latest bit of bad luck, as his scary fall following a Nino Niederreiter hit became especially unfortunate thanks to the Minnesota Wild bench being slightly open.

You can see that frightening fall in the video above.

No word yet on Maatta’s condition. This post will be updated when (or if) information becomes available.

Update: Still nothing official, but Pierre McGuire said that Maatta was taken out of the Consol Energy Center on a gurney.
