Montreal Canadiens forward Andrew Shaw left Tuesday’s game early with what looked like a possible head injury.
Shaw made contact with Dallas Stars defenceman Greg Pateryn midway through the third period, but wound up taking the brunt of the head-to-head collision, which sent him crashing into the boards.
Shaw, who has a history of concussions, needed to be helped off the ice. The team has yet to diagnose anything, but is keeping him “under close evaluation.”
Pateryn appeared to be uninjured on the play, and even attempt to retaliate before realizing Shaw was hurt.
