Arizona Coyotes forward Alex Burmistrov was taken off the ice on a stretcher on Tuesday following a hit by Boston Bruins defenseman Colin Miller.

He was released from the hospital late on Tuesday night, according to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic.

Video of the hit is available up top. The latest update seems positive:
