It was a scary incident last night in the 3rd period as veteran centre Bryan Little was hit in the side of the head by a Nikolaj Ehlers slap shot. Little was down on the ice for a few moments before he made his way to the bench and to the dressing room. Coach Maurice didn’t have an update last night after the game and the team is off today. However they have released this statement:

It has been a tough season for Little who suffered a concussion in the final pre-season game which caused him to miss the start of the regular season. Of the Jets 16 games he has played in seven of them. He has two goals and three assists.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
