Michael Nylander had the puck near the boards during an AHL game for his Rochester in Grand Rapids back Brendan Smith took the bullet. Rigging took offense at the Swede who fell to the ice in pain.
I had poked the puck down when I was tackled into the boards. The player was almost over my head. The only model. I thought I had broken collarbone in fact. It did not feel good at all, “said Nylander.
38-year-old could get the ice under their own steam but then asked about getting to go to hospital where he was X-ray. Once in the hospital bed, the doctors came then with a shock clearance.
There are two neck vertebrae that have been broken. I do not know how bad it is but the doctors will operate on me soon so we’ll see after the surgery.

I did a quick search regarding the injury which was first thought to be a arm, hand or wrist injury.
