Richard Zednik continued to recover Monday afternoon at Buffalo General Hospital after undergoing surgery for a neck laceration suffered during Sunday’s game against the Sabres.
During a press conference Monday afternoon at Buffalo General, doctors said Zednik was alert, was able to speak, and didn’t appear to have any longterm injuries from the incident.
“He actually asked me when he could go back to training,” said Sonya Noor, M.D., the attending surgeon for Zednik.

The four doctors who treated Zednik used words today such as “profusely,” “devastating,” “hanging by a thread” and “lucky” to describe the sliced carotid artery injury suffered by Zednik on Sunday.
