Seems like Smith charged Nylander from behind in a game last night.

Nylander suffered a broken back and neck, however he won't be paralized

EDIT: Seems like the hit might have been legal?

Nylander was hurt in the second period of Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Grand Rapids Griffins. He was checked into the right-wing boards by Griffins’ defenseman Brendan Smith. No penalty was called and the check appeared to be legal.

Smith wasn't penalized, so I'm going to assume that the (obviously Nylander-biased) Swedish article is embellishing about "charge from behind" until I either see video evidence or an official punishment from the AHL.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

That's horrible. I'll withhold judgement until I see it or read about it in detail, but if it's true, Smith may have just moved onto my "piece of s***" list.

Would like to see a video of this.

Either way sucks for Nylander.

I'm assuming that it was just bad luck for Nylander as the article says the hit "appeared to be legal."

Come on, bro. We all want our future franchise dmen to have a bit of a mean streak in them, if smith add 20-25lbs of muscle and learn how to defend properly at pro level he will be great, and i'm saying this even though i love nylander and everything he had done for the swedish national team through out the years...

Apparently it was a legal hit. Sometimes players just goes into the board in a awkward and unlucky way which probably was the cause here. :/

Hope he recover well

Why is Smith a piece of s***? The article says the hit was legal, it was probably just one of those bizarre twists of chance. Horrible for Nylander but it's not as if Smith set out to do that.

Hopefully it was a legal hit and was a weird occurance. I just hope mentally this doesn't mess Smith's game up too much, he might hesitate next time when going into the boards.

Would love to see video. seems like everyone is passing judgment on the kid without even knowing what happened. On TSNs report everyone is saying Smith is a goon that doesnt belong in the game but if there wasn't even a penalty called I really doubt it was dirty or even close to a suspendable offense.

Seriously though, Smith has been pretty damn impressive so far this season. Hitting, Scoring and fighting, he's doing it all. Gonna be a good red wing someday

always liked nylander, glad he is ok but his career is probably over.

Smith sure is making a name for himself. like newfy, i was reading the comments at the bottom of the tsn page and everyone thinks this kid is a thug. apparently he also took out oreskovich with an elbow and oreskovich is out with a concussion, probably why he had to fight maxwell.

either way i need to see some video before i make judgment on this hit.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

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.

Scott Stevens was a dirty son of a ***** as well and hated by many, but if he's on your team you love him and support him, support the kid, kthxbye.

Smith just has all this pent up rage from not being allowed to fight during college except during practice and against his own teammates.

Hehe. But that's just him being aggressive. He could even slewfoot a guy from behind and it'll be ok because he can conduct a post game interview with a smile and look people in the eye like Dan Boyle did. "Wow... He looks me in the eye! Aww he's just a typical rambunctious North American boy. He did no wrong."

Note: I don't really have a point to all that sarcasm it's just that one episode during last year's Olympics came to mind.
