NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey defenseman Mirco Mueller was taken off the ice on a stretcher after crashing into the end boards early in the third period in a game against the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

Mueller went head-first into the boards at an awkward angle after going to the Flames’ net on a rush.

Teammates immediately called for medical personnel to come out to the ice. Play was delayed about 10 minutes while the 23-year-old Swiss player was attended to by medical personnel and trainers from both teams.

Mueller moved his legs and gave a thumbs up as he was wheeled off the ice.

He has one goal and nine assists in 47 games this season.
