After being hit into the boards during a scrimmage, defenseman Michael Campoli had to be stretchered off the ice this morning at Sabres development camp, according to the Buffalo News.

The Sabres wished Campoli well via Twitter, and he was apparently talking and smiling. There’s been no official update on his condition, but one is expected later in the day.

An undrafted 18-year-old who’s committed to play for Boston College next season, Campoli reportedly “went to the ice, tried to get up, but immediately went back down” after being hit. He reportedly stayed motionless on the ice for about 20 minutes while medical personnel and the Buffalo Fire Department worked to stabilize his neck. He was then taken to hospital in an ambulance.
