Nikita Zadorov suffered a concussion from that Tom Wilson hit

The Colorado Avalanche are hurting in more ways than one following Friday’s 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.

However you feel about Tom Wilson‘s hit on Nikita Zadorov, it’s clear that it left Zadorov with an injury.

Patrick Roy confirmed that the young defenseman suffered a concussion from that thunderous check, which was not penalized. The Colorado Avalanche didn’t provide further details regarding how long Zadorov will be out because of that concussion.

The Avs only have four games left in the regular season. While they’re not technically eliminated, last night’s loss made it tough to imagine them playing beyond game 82 … so there’s a chance we might not see Zadorov again this season.

Was it worthy of a suspension or worse? Decide for yourself in the video above.
