Hornqvist Injured at Olympics - Expected to play Wednesday

Patric Hornqvist just took a MASSIVE blindside elbow from Joni Pitkanen and had to be helped off the ice, looked very very woozy. Sorry guys

Just posted it in the GDT... looked ugly. Cheap shot and Hornqvist already looked beat up earlier in the game. Now he looks like he doesn't know where he is. I'm guessing that is the end of his Olympics.

Gonna leave this separate from the GDT to allow for updates as they become available...

However, with the fact that he appeared disoriented coming off the ice and looked off-balance...as a Predator fan, I hope he is held out for the remainder of the Games...

Not happy right now...this is why I don't like NHL players in the Olympics...although the hockey is fantastic to watch...

It would certainly appear so.

Anssi Salmela got destroyed at high speed, torqued, and then hit the ice head first a couple weeks ago and but wound up fine a couple days later- anything is possible.

Saw that. I'm just glad they actually called it.

Hopefully he just had his bell rung and not much else.

Yeah, and Scott Nichol missed 3 months last season from getting his bell rung. This is very bad news. If it is a concussion - and it probably is - he's probably going to miss 2 weeks at best. At worst, who knows how long he'll be out. And, will he play timidly when back on the ice.

We don't need our grittiest offensive player becoming sheepish. I hope he can have a short memory with this one.

Thanks! However, as a Predator fan...I'm not as thrilled about that news as I thought I would be...

Are the international hockey teams as cautious about concussions as the NHL?

SLake, I trust you are not as happy as you thought because you want them to be careful with our young forward. I know I do!

If so, for what it is worth, it sounds like they are trying to be careful. I’ve read several Swedish papers and media sites and from what I read, the Swedish team doctor ran Patric through a set of tests and he passed all of them. They also consulted with an NHL doctor who was on site and the NHL doc was in agreement that it does not look like Patric has a concussion. They said that while he passed the tests and is showing no symptoms of a concussion, symptoms could still develop, but currently everything is looking good. They said Patric want(ed)(s) to return and play. (My Swedish failed me here – not sure if they were saying he wanted to return to the game last night or he wants to come back and play Wednesday). I think it may have said he wanted to return last night because the article went on to say that he was held out of the rest of the game as a precaution.

I’m also going to trust that since Poile is up there, he’ll take an interest in Patric’s well being and have a few conversations before Patric gets back on the ice.

For anyone who did not see the hit a photo here shows how much of a direct hit to the head it was -

http://www.hockeykanalen.se/1.152086...irekta_symptom

There’s some good photos (good in quality - not good to see) of Patric’s reaction to the hit in this set of photos – starting at photo 13 -

http://wwwc.aftonbladet.se/ljudbildspel/swefin21/

It was tough to see, it’s the first time I can recall Patric not immediately jumping up from a hit and jumping right back into the play. He doesn't seem to be one to writhe around on the ice trying to draw a penalty.

From what I read, Joni Pitkänen, who hit Patric, is suspended for Finland’s quarterfinal game.

Thanks for the links.

I can't believe he doesn't have a concussion... He looks so glassy eyed.

Another follow up – sounds like they are being careful.

From: http://www.nhl.com/ice/recap.htm?id=2009090018

It wasn't a totally clean night for the Swedes. Patric Hornqvist left the game late in the second period after he got elbowed hard in the face by Joni Pitkanen. Hornqvist had to be helped off the ice and he didn't return, but neither did Pitkanen.

The Finnish defenseman received a five-minute major for checking to the head and neck area and a game misconduct. As a result of the game misconduct, he is suspended for Finland's quarterfinal-round game.

Hornqvist is also questionable, Sweden coach Bengt-Ake Gustafsson said.

"He's got to go through some medical things (Monday)," Gustafsson said. "He's not in too bad shape, but if we played (Monday) he wouldn't be able to play. But, we have two days."

just what we need going down the final stretch.

It doesn't sound that serious though.

What are you guys talking about? He looked fine when he returned to the bench. I've seen a lot worse many times over.

Still don't like it, but will trust Poile's judgment...

Poile has no control over it...the players are essentially loaned out to their Olympic teams and are completely at their mercy. Unless Sweden came out and said he has a concussion (minimum 7 days, baseline testing, etc) or he had another catastrophe injury (knee, shoulder, etc) the players are taken care of by their country's medical staff until the Games are over.

Especially as the assistant GM of a rival squad, Poile isn't exactly in the greatest position to pull a player from another squad on the suspicion that he has a concussion...you just hope for the sake of the Games, the player's health, and general goodwill that the country doesn't do anything to jeopardize someone's health...

you don't think a GM who's under immense pressure is going to pull out all the stops to repeat as Gold Medalists ... especially, lie cheat & dupe the club's GM of said player to make sure he gives his home country the best chance ... this reeks pretty bad, especially when Hornqvist had to be helped off the ice by two players
