Subban released from hospital, suffered ‘non-serious neck injury’


P.K. Subban has been released from the hospital after suffering what the Montreal Canadiens are calling a “non-serious neck injury,” the club announced this morning.

Subban had to be stretchered off the ice last night in Montreal, following a collision in the corner with teammate Alexei Emelin.

It was a scary moment — one that brought back “a lot of tough memories” for Habs captain Max Pacioretty — but fortunately it appears Subban will be fine.

“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,” said coach Michel Therrien.

“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.”
