Martin Gerber hospitalized with a serious neck injury

From RussianHockeyFans.com
Quote:
Swiss goalie Martin Gerber, who past summer left Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL to play for Atlant Mytischi of the KHL, was hospitalized after suffering a serious neck injury in a game against Vityaz Chekhov on December 13. According to a Russian site lifesports.ru during the second period a Vityaz forward ran into Gerber. As a result Gerber ended up lying on the ice. After being tested by the team's doctors Gerber was put on a wheel stretcher and taken off the ice. He was sent to a Podolsk city hospital where he was diagnosed with a compression fracture of the third cervical vertebra.

"The injury is very serious, Martin can forget about hockey for next 6 months," said one of the hospital's doctors, Igor Suvorov. "Thank god the spinal cord was not hurt and there is no threat to his life. Gerber will soon be sent to a special clinics in Podolsk to have a computed tomography."

Martin Gerber is expected to stay at the hospital for at least 2 months.

I wonder how fast were the medics to react. Let's wait until the video pops up.

And best luck to Martin.

Gerber seriously injured

In today's game he collided with someone and apparently had a serious injury in his neck. He was motionless for a while and was sent to hospital. Some latest info is that there appears no damage to his nerves but he may have broken a vertebrae. MRI is scheduled shortly.

Martin Gerber Hospitalized broken cervical vertebra (Neck).

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=302337

I know he is not in the NHL, but he did play here for quiet some time, and I think people would like to know about this.


Article says he could be hospitalized for two months. Thankfully it sounds like he is expected to make a recovery, but best wishes to Martin Gerber.

Ouch. Hope he recovers.

I've always wondered how there's relatively little serious (paralyzing) neck injuries in professional hockey. I guess the equipment absorbs the shock and protects important areas good enough to keep the numbers low despite the great number of very dangerous looking plays we see in all leagues, every season.

Poor Darth Gerber. That guy can't catch a break.

I really hope his career isn't over but...well I hope he makes a full recovery.

It's good to hear that there was a stretcher available at this arena.

Well, considering that a player was carted off on a tarp one time, the fact there was a stretcher is a bit surprising almost.

It may seem like a joke but with what happened with Cherepanov that is legit statement to make. If this was last year there may not have been a stretcher avaliable

He could have at least worded it better than sounding like a sarcastic ass about it.Is that too much to ask for?

Wow, tough luck play. Reminder of how fortunate it is that there are not many more serious injuries in the sport.

The report now says it's not as serious as once thought and he should be OK in 2-3 weeks


On a side note, if they play in places like that and in front of those crowds, how do they afford to pay some of these ludicrous contracts that they offer or sign people to?
