Scary scene from the Arizona Coyotes – Vancouver Canucks game on Thursday: Brad Richardson was taken off on a stretcher after the awkward hit he received.
He’s been taken to a Vancouver-area hospital with what’s currently labeled a lower-body injury, according to Dave Vest of the team’s website.
To little surprise, Richardson won’t return to Thursday’s game. It’s unclear how serious his injury is beyond that.
You can see that unfortunate hit – Richardson was caught at an inopportune time – in the video above this post’s headline.
Update: After the Coyotes’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks, Dave Tippett said he expects to know more about Richardson’s status as soon as Friday, but believes “we’re looking at a pretty significant injury.”
