Todd McLellan Struck By Stick While Behind The Bench

via NHL.com,

The San Jose Sharks received a scare early in the second period against Minnesota on Sunday, when coach Todd McLellan collapsed behind the bench after being struck in the head by a stick.

Officials blew play dead at 17:45, seconds after Minnesota’s Nick Schultz tied the game 2-2 at the Xcel Energy Center. In-game cameras missed the incident, but Sharks players surrounded the bench as medical and arena personnel helped McLellan to his feet and into the locker room. A stretcher was wheeled over to the bench, but was not needed.

McLellan was evaluated by doctors and is still under observation, but is alert and responsive. He will remain at the arena and watch the game from the Sharks’ locker room.
