Flyers' Michal Neuvirth Collapses on Ice, Taken Off on Stretcher


Recommended Posts


Neuvirth, 29, was awaiting a faceoff at the far end of the ice about seven-and-a-half minutes into the game when he fell backward and landed on his back. Flyers athletic trainer Jim McCrossin quickly ran onto the ice to attend to him and was joined by three other team doctors.

Neuvirth appeared to be unconscious for a brief time, but he began moving his arms and legs and sat up in his crease before being placed on a stretcher and carted off the ice.

"We sent him to the hospital for precautionary reasons, and everything so far has been good,'' Hextall said, adding that Neuvirth will not make the team's trip to New York for Sunday night's game against the Rangers.
