Little left the ice with 12:33 remaining in the third period of the Jets’ 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday after getting hit by teammate Nikolaj Ehlers‘ one-timer from the point. The 31-year-old collapsed and blood was seen on the ice before he was taken by trainers to the team’s dressing room.
The Jets said he was transported to Boniface Hospital for treatment of the wound before being transferred to the Health Sciences Centre’s neurological unit for observation. He was alert and in good spirits.
Little was sidelined the first nine games of the season with a concussion. He has five points in seven games this season.
