Anssi Salmela: scores and gets KO'd

He just scored a goal and then was clobbered. He was out and now taken off on stretcher.

Jeff Carter shoulder to his head after the shot. Moved his legs finally. Was cut somewhere on his face. Kovy skated over and spent a little time talking to him on his way out.

Exelby is currently getting his clock cleaned in a fight Toronto v. San Jose.

Now, back to the current Thrashers!

Saw that happen. He was out for quite awhile before he responded.

As terrible as the hit to Salmela sounds, this comment made me laugh.

Get better soon, Salmela!

Broken nose and lost some teeth according to his slimeball agent, GROSSman.

Looked to me like the hit was shoulder-to-shoulder but that Anssi's head hit the ice pretty hard as he didn't see Carter coming. This is the only angle I've seen though.

Hope he's alright and doesn't miss any time. That was a clean hit by Carter though. When you see it from all the angles, it was shoulder on shoulder all the way and right in the heat of the play so it wasn't late either.

The damage to his head had to have been done when it smacked the ice.



if you go to about 4:13 in that video you can see the hit from a few different angles. It was pretty clean.

it was shoulder on head after the shot was away. Not calling it dirty, but Anssi was not prepared for it and he was out before he hit the ice. He didn't even try to catch himself. Busted his face on the ice, but it was clear he was out before he hit.

Side Note: sadly humorous to read the post-game comments of the Devs game thread.... sounds like a Thrasher rant pre-trade. Someone went so far as to say the "Devils have become the Thrashers!" All they do is try to feed Kovalchuk.

Other comments just as painful as our board used to be.
Kovy Devs.... 1-2.

Kovyless Thrashers 1-1.

I haven't seen him with the Devils yet but he's sure as heck given my fantasy team a shot in the arm. 8 shots on goal last game and 9 tonight. He's single-handedly boosted me one entire rank in my rotisserie league in that category in just two games!

WOW did Kovy turn into Ovechkin? 8 and 9 shot games? what a disgrace. Devils + Kovy = horrible fit... yup he won't re-sign with them.

I'll say there was a bit of contact also to the head but not much. Well not that dirty of a hit and should not get suspension. Anssi didn't see it or expect it and a nasty fall too. Hopefully he will be fine.

Oh yeah awesome goal while shorthanded.

This is exactly what I saw as well. I might be wrong, but I've never seen anyone knocked out by getting hit in the shoulder.

Where have I recently seen a hit to the head where a guy was knocked out? Hrmmm... Lemme see if I can find a link.

I thought that was a bit cheap. Carter came in from behind Anssi couldn't see him to prepare for the hit. Add to the fact that Salmela was prone and defenseless? Carter should be suspended

the hit was clean, but carter knew what he was doing. i'm sure he didn't intend for it to be so brutal, but it was definitely on the malicious side.
