via Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle left the ice on a stretcher following a hit from behind by St. Louis’ Maxim Lapierre in the first period of the Sharks-Blues game on Tuesday night.

Boyle was motionless on the ice for several minutes after the hit, which occurred in the corner behind Sharks goalie Antti Niemi, and several Sharks players quickly motioned to the benches for team trainers. Boyle, strapped onto the stretcher, managed to raise his right arm as he was being wheeled off of the ice with 14:38 to go in the period.

Lapierre received a five-minute major for checking from behind, a fighting major for dropping the gloves with Andrew Desjardins, and a game misconduct. Ryan Reaves and Matt Pelech also fought after the hit.

Reports state Boyle was alert and responsive while being transported to the hospital.

I really hope Boyle is okay ??  Maxim Lapierre is a dirty player and he doesn’t belong in the NHL..suspend him for 10 years.

No date yet, but Lapierre has an in-person hearing with the NHL.
