Canadiens' Phillip Danault taken off Bell Centre ice on stretcher

Montreal Canadiens

Phillip Danault was stretchered off the ice after taking a Zdeno Chara shot to the head on Saturday night.

Danault was down on the ice for quite some time, getting the attention of the team's medical staff. According to the broadcast Chara's shot was clocked at 123 km/h (76 mph), which is fortunate considering how hard the Bruins captain can fire the puck.

The 24-year-old had an assist on a first-period goal by Max Pacioretty and has 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists) in 43 games this season.

The period was ended between the Canadiens and Bruins with 1:37 to play after the scary scene involving Danault.

Danault played in all 82 regular season games for the Canadiens last season, scoring 13 goals and dishing out 27 assists with a plus/minus of +5. Danault fell to the ice and appeared to be unconscious as Graham Rynbend, the Canadiens' head athletic therapist, rushed onto the ice to tend to him.
