I don't get TSN but people on HF are saying that their broadcast is reporting that he is out of surgery and resting comfortably. His wife is on her way from Florida to accompanying him. Good news, it looks like he will be ok.

Via HF, I heard that one of the doctors actually held his artery on the way to the hospital, that came from the Sabres telecast tonight. Thank God everyone was able to act quickly and correctly.

Edit: Panther's Website also confirms that he is resting after his surgery.

Wow... that picture speaks volumes. I'm just glad Zednik is going to be okay. The first thing I thought of when I saw this was Clint Malarchuk. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

It looks like the latest is that Zednik is out of surgery and resting. NHL Network said that the Panthers will provide un update tomorrow morning.

NHL medical teams have to be some of the best in the sports business, they always seem to respond so fast.

I remember when jiri fischer suffered heart failure on the Bench, and he was saved by the doctors, who worked so quickly to rectify the problem. Other sports such as Soccer could learn a valuable lesson, 3 players have died on the field in the last year and a half.

Glad Zed's is OK, i have always liked him as a player, and he had just started to find his form this season, hope he recovers back to full health.

I saw this last night. Its sooo sad, I really hope he's okay. This makes me think of Malarchuk(sp?), I dont know I dont think theres really anything the NHL could do to prevent this from happening again but I dont think it would hurt to try.

Me too. I've always rooted him on, he's been a random favorite player of mine for years now. Josh and I were talking about this last night, we both agreed that had we been at that game last night, we would have left -- it would have been too much to handle. Glad Zeddie should be okay, thoughts and prayers are with him no doubt.

I am so thankful he is going to be okay. He was in my prayers last night. That photo of the fan reaction says it all.

I'm just glad that he had the presence of mind to stay on his skates and get to the bench as fast as he could. If he had sunk to the ice, it would have taken enough longer for help to get to him, that it might have been a life-or-death decision.

:pray:

Very tough call IMO for the NHL on whether to cancel the game or not...I was thinking 'man I could go either way on this at this point' and would have had zero issue if they had stopped the game.

I was also thinking about the Kevin Everett injury in Buffalo this past September, he was carted off, completely motionless, and the game went on. it is such a tough call at that point, but again, if it were me, I would have probably canceled it. But kudos to the Sabres for announcing clearly that Zednik was stable and a nice standing O for Zednik IMO was a nice move by Buffalo fans.

Here's a link to a really good article about Malarchuk's reaction to all this. It's very interesting:

Wow I didn't realize he was that emotionally affected by it. Not that I blame him at all, but I was always under the impression that he was joking around about it soon after the incident and played it down and such.
