Red Wings try-out Brandon Robinson taken to hospital for evaluation

Red Wings free agent try-out and Kitchener Rangers forward Brandon Robinson was hit into the boards and stretchered off the ice here at Centre Ice Arena during the Red Wings-Wild game. He's been taken to hospital for observation.

Update: Between the Wings and hearing Ken Holland speak with the Hockey News's Ken Cambpell and NHL.com's Mike Morreale, it sounds like Robinson was alert and had movement in all his extremities, and he even was able to speak with his parents before he went to the hospital. It sounds like he basically toe-picked while trying to hit an opponent and went in head-first, but all reports seem to indicate that he's going to be okay.

He got bumped, lost his balance and fell head first into the boards, with most of his weight on his neck.  Glad to hear the doc said he was moving, because from our seat we couldnt see any movement.  Hope he comeback ok.

It seemed like he was on the ice for 10 minutes before they got the stretcher out to him and it didn’t look to me like he budged an inch. Hope the early reports that he will be okay turn out to be true.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
