Coyle received a match penalty and 5 for fighting and Anisimov did not return to the game.
First the Columbus broadcast followed by the Wild broadcast below.
Best to watch the replays from both feeds after the fight to get a better view of the hit.
Anisimov was tied up with Kyle Quincey behind the Detroit net, Quincey fell on him and it appeared Anisimov's head hit the ice pretty hard.
Report from Larry Murphy who is between the benches is Anisimov was alert when taken off the ice.
added 8:52pm, This post was by me, Paul. I had posted the Abel to Yzerman blog tonight and forgot to sign out as the Chief and sign back in as me.
added 9:00pm, Here is a video of the injury and the Wings are now reporting Quincey suffered a lower-body injury on the play and will not return.
added 9:06pm, Video from the Columbus broadcast can be seen below...
Turns this stick around like a gun and points it at the ..... opposition? No Artem, not the opposition or else you WILL need Lindsay to ride shotgun for you.
(For those of you who don’t why the Ted Lindsay reference, here is the short version.
Gordie Howe received a death threat while in Toronto, after the Wings won and were going off the ice, Lindsay turned his stick around and started firing machine gun like bullets at the crowd.)
from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,
When I was doing my due diligence for a “Fab Freshman” article for our annual Poolbook in the summer, I grabbed the opinions of a couple NHL scouts on which players they thought would impress the most in their inaugural run through The Circuit. Names on the list included Tavares, Nikita Filatov, Cody Hodgson, Matt Gilroy, Colin Wilson and more, but when the name Artem Anisimov came up, there was an underlining pause.
The Rangers prospect is the guy to watch out for.
“Honestly, I think he’s the best of the ones you’ve named so far,” said one scout.
Now, we’re not necessarily talking long-term potential here – though with what Anisimov brings to the table, it’s entirely possible he could bloom into a superstar. This is purely about Year 1 and how this year’s Calder Trophy race will most likely play out.
