Florida Panthers winger David Booth is alert and moving after being taken off the ice on a stretcher after a hard hit to the head from Philadelphia Flyers captain Mike Richards on Saturday night.
Booth, 25, remained motionless on the ice after the dangerous hit administered by the Flyers star. Booth was taken to Pennsylvania Hospital in south Philadelphia where he was expected to remain at least until Sunday.
Team athletic trainer Steve Dischiavi rode to the hospital with Booth and will remain with him until he can return to South Florida. The Panthers boarded a jet soon after Saturday’s game.
‘‘They are doing a whole host of tests just to make sure everything is OK,’’ said general manager Randy Sexton. ‘‘I don’t know [if Booth had a concussion]. It’s too early to tell. The injury just happened. We’ll have a much clearer picture in the morning. He was moving his extremities and was awake when he left the ice.’‘
