ST. PAUL, Minn. – Calgary Flames centre Daymond Langkow is in good condition at a local hospital after being hit in the back of the neck with a puck.
The team said Langkow has movement in all his extremities and is undergoing X-rays and more tests.
Langkow was not moving as he was removed from the ice on a stretcher. The 13-year veteran remained on the ice for nearly 10 minutes before leaving. He was injured at 5:20 of the second period of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Wild.
Langkow was checked from behind by Minnesota defenceman Greg Zanon and hit Wild defenceman Marek Zidlicky as he lost his balance and fell forward. With Langkow’s head down as he fell, Calgary defenceman Ian White fired toward the net and hit his teammate.
