Videos- Jacob Trouba And Ben Bishop Injured In Winnipeg/Dallas Game

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,

The celebration over a hard-fought win that brought the Winnipeg Jets a step closer to locking up a playoff spot was muted Sunday night as another key member of the team went down with what looks like a troubling injury.

For all the excitement coming out of a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars at Bell MTS Place, there was also obvious concern over the health of defenceman Jacob Trouba, who left in the third period after a thunderous collision — with contact to the head — with Stars captain Jamie Benn.

Trouba tried to get to his feet but fell over after taking the hit, had to be helped onto the bench and went straight down the tunnel to the dressing room, presumably for concussion protocol....

Jets coach Paul Maurice said there will be no official diagnosis until Monday but it’s obviously concerning because there was head-to-head contact between Benn and Trouba.

“I had a lousy seat there on the other side of the boards, but they both came together and it was helmet on helmet,” he said.

“I’ve seen it happen before to players and they bounce back pretty quick.”

Also in the game, Ben Bishop left with a lower-body injury and the Stars say he will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Damm, Trouba’s been playing very good this season, when healthy.
