NHL Player Taken Off-Ice On Stretcher After Terrifying Collision

After being stretchered off the ice against the Nashville Predators on Thursday night, Vegas Golden Knights forward Brett Howden is in stable condition.

After a hit from Predators winger Filip Forsberg with three minutes left in the first period, Howden was pushed headfirst into the boards.

Howden, a 23-year-old forward, lost his footing seconds before the horrifying moment, putting him in a precarious position.

When Forsberg landed on Howden, he became concerned and returned to check on the former New York Ranger.

On the play, Forsberg received no penalty.

Despite the crowd’s quiet, emergency personnel raced to the ice and attended to Howden.

Howden seemed to be conscious as he was carried off the ice and transported to a local hospital on a stretcher. Howden would be subjected to additional diagnostics and testing, according to the Golden Knights.

“We just hope he’s ok. It’s a player’s health. That’s the most important thing. It was definitely shocking. We just hope he’s going to be ok and can recover quickly,” During the first intermission, Predators captain Roman Josi told Bally Sports.

After the game, Golden Knights head coach Pete DeBoer announced that Howden had complete range of motion. According to official reports, Howden escaped injuries to his neck and spine.

Howden is in his debut season with the Golden Knights, having played in 46 games and scoring 20 points. Until last July, he spent the first three years of his NHL career with the Rangers.
