We already saw one lacerated leg, and now we have a one-timer drilling a player in the back of the helmet.
Saturday night hasn’t been so kind.
Ottawa Senators forward Ryan Dzingel was forced to leave the game after some friendly fire against the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 2-1 loss.
Dzingel was drilled in the back of the head from teammate Mike Hoffman‘s one-timer of the back of his helmet around the mid-way point of the third period.
Dzingel remained down for a time but was able to skate off the ice with some assistance from Ottawa’s trainers.
He did not return to the game.
If you watch this closely, you will see Dzingel’s No. 8 on the back of his helmet fly off after contact with the puck.
