Canucks’ Jannik Hansen OK despite collapsing on bench

NHL.com's Kevin Woodley needs to explain this before you see it:

Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen left the game after collapsing briefly on the bench shortly after taking a hit early in the second period against the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Hansen was conscious and on his feet moments later but had to be helped to the locker room by medical staff.

CBC reported that Hansen was being observed in the Canucks dressing room and was not taken to a hospital. It later said he was walking to the Canucks' workout room.

Hansen took a hit from Calgary defenseman Dennis Wideman in the corner and was hunched over as he skated straight off. He remained hunched over as he sat on the bench while play continued, then slumped forward, his body appearing to go limp as teammates caught him and banged their sticks on the boards to get the attention of referees, who stopped play while medical staff rushed out from behind the Canucks net.

Hockey Night in Canada's Scott Oake was the one who reported that Hansen was walking on his own, but, via Yahoo Sports' Josh Cooper, that's pretty damn amazing:

I can only make a speculative and educated guess here: if Hansen was concussed or otherwise "had his bell rung" by the Wideman hit, it could've taken some time for his body to process that reaction and wooziness to hit.

Disciplinary Hearing for Weber

From NHL.com:

Nashville’s Shea Weber will have a disciplinary hearing Friday afternoon following a boarding penalty assessed to the Predators defenseman for a hit on Vancouver’s Jannik Hansen during Thursday’s game.

At 5:12 of the third period, Weber was penalized for boarding Hansen, and also given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

At NBC’s ProHockeyTalk, Mike Halford adds some thoughts:

The question now is if Weber will be considered a repeat offender.  In Nashville’s previous game — a 3-1 loss to Edmonton — Weber also received a two-minute boarding minor for nailing Jordan Eberle. No, Weber wouldn’t be a repeat offender in the traditional sense. Yes, he could still be classified as one.

Tough Time To Break A Hand

from Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,

The good news is Jannik Hansen won the fight. The bad news is he could be lost for 4-6 weeks or longer with a broken hand.

The worst part is the regular season starts Thursday.

Hansen’s right hand was grotesquely misshapen after a fight with former Vancouver Giants’ junior Gilbert Brule during the Canucks’ 5-4 pre-season overtime loss Sunday against the Edmonton Oilers.

“Obviously, it’s not very good timing,” Hansen said. “It’s very swollen. I’m not quite sure how bad it is.”
