Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson sustained a neck injury and was stretchered off the ice in Sunday afternoon’s shootout loss to the Dallas Stars after taking a knee to the head from Valeri Nichushkin.
Scary moment here as Craig Anderson gets run into and stays down. Stretcher coming out now, hopefully just as a precaution.
Nichushkin was driving to the net in overtime and his knee rammed into Anderson’s head, bending his neck backwards. Anderson lied on the ice for several minutes as he was attended by medical staff and was then stretchered off the ice, giving a thumbs up as he exited.
Anderson was seen walking to the Senators locker room after leaving the ice.
Very good sign, Anderson walked by still in his gear. Snuck a look at the monitor to see what was happening in the game.
