Jacob Trouba goes head first into boards, carried off on stretcher


SOB for MVP

Recommended Posts

Trouba just went head first into the boards (with the neck snapping back) in the Blues-Jets game, tripped over Jordan Leopold.

Not Leopold's fault, but same result as Kronwall and Boyle, going hard into the boards and being carried off on a stretcher.

Hope the kid is okay, only 19 years old.

I really don't want to be that guy, but I have to jab Shanny here.

I wonder how many games Edler or the Boards will get for this obviously blatant and illegal hit

Honestly, just a freak accident but wow he hit hard. The kids gold for the Jets and such a solid player. I hope he's ok

As painful as that looked, I don't think he'll have any serious injury from it. He wasn't knocked out and was moving around immediately, so unless he has a concussion, I think he'll be fine. Probably just a case of the Jets being extra-cautious with one of their young guys.

Was a stretcher really necessary? But then again, I guess better safe than sorry. (remember Mason Raymond..)

That was 100% Trouba's own fault. Went for a hit and flat out missed. He's gonna be a good one hope he gets well soon!

Yuck! I hate seeing this sort of thing, sadly its just one of those things, they could add chin guards or something, but, when you get to that point it'll change the game too much..

Regardless, I hope he recovers quickly, he was looking like one hell of a player.
