Ward Suffers Throat Injury

from the CP via TSN,

(Aaron) Ward was not bleeding when he left the ice and did not leave on a stretcher, but coach Claude Julien said following Boston’s 2-1 win that Ward coughed up some blood before leaving the ice.

The 35-year-old Ward was skating toward Penguins defenceman Sergei Gonchar near the end boards when Gonchar got either his forearm or his stick up and accidentally struck Ward in the neck.

‘‘I got there and he was making a choking sound, holding his throat and gasping for air,’’ teammate Zdeno Chara said.
