I could only find specific reference to two. They found two in LA at the time it happened, one later.

At the end of the article he says he cracked his C4 and C7.

Horrible injury and he was not exactly the same after, but this bodes well for Pacioretty. Assuming there's not more to learn, I'd guess Pacioretty has more to fear from the head injury than the neck injury.
Savage didnt have a severe concussion.

That severe concussion is possible 6 months of inactivty RIGHT there... he may never be the same again, ..how about that ******* s***
