Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban is “feeling good” after leaving Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres in the third period, he tweeted Friday.
“Feeling good, and feeling the love. Thanks for all the support!!” Subban wrote.
Subban was removed from the ice by a stretcher after he collided with teammate Alexei Emelin in the third period. He gave a thumbs up to the crowd on his way off the ice.
The Canadiens later announced that Subban was transported to a local hospital for further testing and that he had normal movement in his extremities. He was later released from the hospital with what the team called a “non-serious neck injury.” Subban, however, will not play Saturday against Minnesota.
Subban has six goals and 45 assists on the season for the 32–30–6 Canadiens.
