from cbssports.com

Detroit winger Patrick Eaves was taken off the ice on a stretcher late in the game after he was struck near the right ear by Roman Josi's slap shot. He was conscious and lifted himself onto the cart before leaving the arena.

"You don't want to see a player go down and be taken off on a stretcher," said Josi, who made his NHL debut Saturday night. "I felt bad. I said that to him and he said it's alright and he's going to be fine. That was good; he stood up alone and got on the stretcher."

Eaves was taken to the nearby Detroit Medical Center. Babcock did not know his condition after the game.


Poor Patty.. takes the shot, and then tells the kid who hit him that it's alright. Classy move by Josi to check on him, and even classier by Eaves to shake it off and try to make the kid feel better about it.

No timetable for return

Will be re evaluated over the next few days to decide if surgery is necessary.

and you damn well know that once eaves is back he will be right there putting himself in harms way blocking shots again. wish there was more guys on this team that had guts like that.

get back soon patty!

Unfortunately, if Eaves wasn't in the way, it was going to hit someone else up high since it was a terrible slap shot with no accuracy. But I agree, this will now way deter Eaves from blocking shots that he actually intended to block.

The young Swiss lad was making his NHL debut and must be feeling awful right now. But in his defence the puck actually flipped up as he was shooting, so it turned into a knuckle ball shot that can wind up anywhere and for
poor Patty he was first in line. Speedy recovery Pat, and spare a thought for Josi to.

On another note that has been raised in this thread, Emmerton may not be the flashiest and most productive
player we have but he has been steady and i would say is doing what he has been told to do by Babs. Its not as
if he is a -10, so im not sure what some fans expect out of a rookie 4th line centre. (anyway i gotta root for him as he wears my # )

Eaves is one of my top 5 favorite players on this team, I cannot understand why he would EVER be a healthy scratch... So now he finally gets back into the line up and this happens. Ugh... Get better soon Patty!

Side note - I agree with most of you, class act by Josi to go over to Eaves and check on him :thumbup:

That poor kid must feel two inches tall right now. I applaud him for going over and apologizing to Patrick. My heart goes out to both of them, and I hope Pat has a speedy recovery. NO kisses from Reuben for you!

Classy act by the kid to apologize. :clap: That's the common courtesy the NHL players seem to lack for one another these days. Play hard, hit hard, but when someone is seriously hurt, you put everything aside to make sure he's okay :thumbup:

Don't think anything seriously wrong will come from the injury, as some people have already mentioned it's a fractured jaw which might pose some problems as it's so high up. It wont just be a bone that can be held in place and allowed to fix naturally, it might need a wire or something to stop it slipping under gravity (I mean it must be the very top of the jaw if it's right underneath the ear). But with regards to him falling so dramatically, seeing as it was his ear, it was probably a balance issue that meant he flopped, and most likely passed out. It was shocking to watch and as a fan, I feared something might be wrong, but it probably hit him in a fairly alright place (not that I'd like it! lol) but there's no real shot to any brain area (bit too low), there's quite strong bone protection (jaw), and it was away from his cheeks which can have some serious knock on affects (such as displacing the eye socket which is really horrible). I mean anywhere else could have potentially been much worse, but still wish him a speedy recovery. Shows why he should be in this team every game, just doing everything he can to stop a shot, which like someone already mentioned, this team has been doing a lot of recently.

Also have to say I felt so sorry for Josi. He did look like "oh my God what the heck have I done?!" I mean he's not been long playing out of facemasks surely. Classy move by him to see Patty as he was leaving the ice.

If he didnt turn his head it wouldve hit him right in the visor and who knows what wouldve happened then. I know theyre rated to take shots like that.

Sucks for eaves. Hope he gets well soon

Atleast the wings are showing some guts

I wonder if the ear guards would have helped in this case. I never understood why the pros take them off.

Broken jaw = having your jaw wired shut for at least 6 weeks pending on the fracture. Damn

Reminds me of Roenick a couple of years ago, when a slapshot broke his jaw and knocked him out cold.

Very dangerous play and I guess Eaves will be out for a while now.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

MLive is reporting Eaves is out 6-8 weeks, ans that they are hoping he'll be back mid-January.

Getting hit in the jaw can cause some serious intra-cranial vibrations, and is a leading cause of concussions. High on the side where Eaves was hit isn't as bad as other areas but can still be very serious. Hopefully, the jaw is the worst of his injuries.

Maybe they'll call up Tatar. Not that he's earned it the most. He just desperately needs a spark.

Get well soon, Patty Eaves, we haven't seen enough of you this season.

I think Nyquist would be the first option at GR.
