Get better soon Nylander!! Really unfortunate.
With Nylander in control of the puck, Smith delivered a solid hit from behind and Nylander fell into the boards at a somewhat awkward angle. The hit appeared to be legal and no penalty was assessed.
This makes me think Nylander showed his numbers at the last moment, which would be why it could be a hit from behind and legal hit?
Nylander knew immediately that he was seriously hurt. He skated directly to the bench, leaving behind a trail of equipment and poignant words.
Glad to hear he skated away. Hopefully he can play again and go out the right way.
