He got cut on his throat with a skate and bleed so much in such a short time. There was blood all over the ice. It looked so bad. I really hope he is ok. :pray:

Oli fell and his skate came up and hit Zednik in the throat and sliced him. God damn I just saw the replay and it looked so awful.

They had the zambonis come out to clean the ice cause there was that much blood on the ice. The arena is dead silent.

Poor Zed he had just found his form as well this season.

Hope he is ok.

I just heard this. Listening on the radio now.

Thank god he's in stable condition. They just announced it.

The last big cut I remember in the NHL was a Sabres player.

I've been watching the game all night and just came here to talk about this.

Never in my life have I ever seen that much blood on the ice, and he was off the ice pretty quickly after getting cut. The worry is that he may have severed his corrotid artery.

My thoughts and prayers are with Zednik, his family, and his teammates.

I've never felt this scared about a player injury before.

UPDATE:: It has been released that Zednik is in stable condition and is on his way to the hospital.

Wow. I wish nothing but the best. Get well soon, Rich.

Holy sh!t! Hope he is Ok. Hate to see a player get hurt that way and especially when it could be life threatening. Please follow up if any more news on Zednik occurs. Thanks.

very classy fans in Buffalo, a standing ovation was given when they were informed he's alright.

Ya I have never seen that much blood either before on the ice. They just announced in the arena that he was stable. Looks like the game will finish. The fans in Buffalo gave a standing ovation to the announcement. Great to see.

I'm pulling for the Panthers to come back and win this game now.

Well buffalo fans will understand how frighting it can be to have a player have his throat cut on the ice.

I expect thats a sight many of their fans wouldnt have expected to see again.

as I recall, Clint Malarchuk played only a few weeks after his injury - hopefully Zednik recovers just as quickly.

Clint Malarchuk, anybody..?

Hope Zed is okay though .. Clint's incident was really ugly, I wonder if it was anything as gruesome as that

It may have been worse, there looked to be more blood than Clints incident.

Yes sir. I believe he reported to practice 4 days later with 300 or so stitches saying "I play for Keeps".

:hail:

Clint's was an awful incident, and I've only been able to watch it once. It gets stuck in my head every time I strap my own skates on and go play.

Hopefully Zednik recovers just as easily as Clint did.

Maybe we will start seeing some more players wearing neck guards now.
