Rookie center Andrew Desjardins was near the blue line when he was on the receiving end of a high hit by Blue Jackets left wing Dane Byers early in the second period. Desjardins fell woozily to the ice, then was helped to the locker room. He did not return.
“That’s exactly what we want to eliminate from the game, exactly,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said.
Desjardins said he was taken to what is known in the NHL as the “quiet room” after the hit, but he said after the game he was feeling much better.
“You can’t risk anything, but we don’t know anything” he said of the decision to keep him out of the rest of the game. “I feel fine, I feel all right.”
