Thoughts and prayers to him and his family. Glad to hear that he is now in stable condition. Hopefully he has a full and quick recovery. Thank God he wasn't killed.

That says he will undergo surgery.

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

I don't know if we will right away, but I am sure future generations will. Sort of how more players were visors nowadays. I know last year on my team we only had 2 guys that wore the neck guards, but all of the kids' teams that would practice at the same arena where actually mandated to wear them in games and practices as a rule within their league.

I wouldn't be surprised if not a single player wears one, but then again if a few do start wearing them I wouldn't be surprised either.

That is really scary and I'm really glad Richard is okay. He's a player I like, and no one wants to see any player get hurt this bad, especially how it happened. Scary video, scary injury, but it sounds like he's going to be alright. It really shook me to the core when I saw this, just like the Malarchuk incident. But I'm really glad he's going to be okay.

We had to wear neck guards as kids, but teams from Washington didn't have to (and most players didn't). They had to wear mouth guards and we didn't though. Always struck me as odd.

OMG! That is so scary to watch. I am just stunned just like the players looked out on that ice. They got medical guys right away which was a good thing. It looked like Zednik was passing out when he got to the bench. Thanks for the video and it is so sad and hope Richard will be ok. Thoughts and prayers will be with him tonight. Wow. :saddevil:

That's so awful. I won't feel at ease about him until his condition is "good" Stable condition means nothing - it means they've stabilized his vitals - that's it. It at least means they can get him to the hospital.

You really have to respect hockey players. An incident like this really shows you how dangerous this sport really is. Fortunately things like this don't happen to often but between the razor sharp blades and the flying pucks, there is always that potential for something bad to happen.
