Florida Panthers forward Richard Zednik was rushed to hospital on Sunday night after taking a skate to the neck in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena.

With the Sabres leading 4-3 midway through the third period, linemate Olli Jokinen - who was being checked in the Sabres' zone - fell forward and his skate accidently caught Zednik's neck.

Zednik bled profusely from the cut, but was able to skate toward his bench where he was met by the trainer and immediately ushered to the locker room.

Zednik is listed as stable and was transported to a hospital.

Players, coaches and fans sat in silence after the accident, and the game was delayed for 15 minutes as the blood was cleaned off the ice. Fans gave a standing ovation after the public address announcer gave the update on Zednik's condition.



Prior to resuming the game, referee Bill McCreary and Panthers coach Jacques Martin consulted in the tunnel outside the Panthers' dressing room.

Sabres general manager Darcy Regier was also spotted talking with NHL vice president Colin Campbell, who was at HSBC Arena to watch his son Gregory play for the Panthers.

Zednik, 32, signed a two-year deal with the Panthers last summer. The native of Slovakia has played in 12 NHL seasons with the Panthers, New York Islanders, Washington Capitals and Montreal Canadiens.

He has 15 goals and 26 points this season.

It's not the first time that hockey fans in Buffalo witnessed such an uncomfortable incident. Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk had his jugular sliced in a 1989 game against the St. Louis Blues.

Doesn't sound too good. I'll look for a clip on youtube. Since I'm in San Jose TV is not an option. Hopefully he'll be OK.

Ouch! Hopefully the cut isn't too deep. Best luck, and a quick recovery.

He's at Buffalo General Hospital having surgery to repair the damage. That is the last I heard from local news. It looks like the blood trail went from the Sabre goal line to the Panther bench and the Zambonis came out to clear the ice.

Very similar to the Clint Malarchuk injury in 1989

I hope all is well

SportsCenter showed it a little bit ago.....Zednik had the presence of mind to immediately skate over to the Panthers bench, where he was attended to. Scary incident to say the least ...glad to hear he'll be OK.

That Malarchuk video is enough to make all of us a bit squeamish.

It's not that visible on the video, but there's a definite trail of it from the corner where it happened over to the bench area.

Scary to watch. Hope he can make a quick recovery.

Aye. We always were told to try and watch what our legs were doing while hitting/being hit. Sometimes you can't control these things, but yes, it can happen. Glad to hear he's ok.  bigthumbsup

The amazing thing about Malarchuk is that he came back less than 2 weeks after. Hopefully Zednik will be able to do the same.

It is interesting that they are doing full on surgery on Zednik. Malarchuk's injury was closed with 300 stiches. It does look like the trainer that got to him did exactly what the trainer that treated Malarchuk did, and that is hold the artery/vein closed the whole way.

That's what I do really like about this video, is that about a 1/3rd of the way through the video they take a shot of the opposing bench, and just in the background you can see the opposing team trainers and doctors at a full run doing down the tunnel to go help.

Didn't a spectator die of a heart attack that night?

I'm not going to watch the video....i can imagine it just fine.

As others noted, full marks to the training/medical staff!!

Honestly, you really don't see a whole lot, it's not like the video with Malarachuk a few years back, where you saw blood pouring on the ice. But it's definitely a occupational hazard, and it was a completely freak set of events.

Hope he'll be doing better soon.

2 had heart attacks and I believe 1 died from it. Ironically enough, Malarchuk used to be a goaltending coach for the Panthers, too.

I remember watching the 'Canes-'Pens game where Erik Cole's neck was broken and that was bad enough - I can't even imagine what seeing this would have been like.

Anyway, thoughts and prayers go out to Zednik and his family and kudos to the Panthers' trainer for having the clarity of mind to take the steps necessary to save Zed's life.

Its true. I happen to think the Malarchuk video is worse. Witht he Zednik video, if you look around youtube you may be able to find one of his face as he goes skating by, that to me looks the worse because he has pre Fear in his pale face.....

In this video, its just the trail of blood from the goal line to the bench that really makes you blink twice.

Wow, shocking video. Has this ever happened before in the NHL? Possible implementation of neck guards?
Anyways, Get well Richard! This could have turned out way worse. Great job by the medical staff to get him to the hospital as quickly as possible. I think that one player said it best in the interview, he had great mental awareness to recognize the immediate problem and skate over to the bench as fast as possible. He could have just fallen down and not thought about it and passed out from blood loss.

This reminds me of why I really should wear a neck guard while speedskating. After watching one of my teammates slicing his own Achilles tendon with his own skate while falling...shudder.

Glad everybody had the presence of mind to do exactly as they did. I hope Zednik recovers fully.
