Habs' Danault leaves game on stretcher

Habs' Danault leaves game on stretcher

Danault was struck in the head by a Zdeno Chara slap shot late in the second period Saturday, and was stretchered off the ice.

Chara, who stood by Danault and the medics immediately following the shot, did not leave the ice until the stretcher was wheeled off. Danault was put on a backboard and then a stretcher and taken off the ice as fans at the Bell Centre chanted "Da-nault!"

The Canadiens later released a statement and confirmed Danault was moving and awake when he was transported to the hospital with a head injury that will require additional testing.

Harbour gave her a high number, but naturally, Twitter mobilized quickly to reach the goal. The snap in question is no ordinary photograph.

Chara and other players from both teams gathered around Danault as he was attended by medical staff.

Through 42 games this season entering Saturday night, Danault had registered seven goals and 15 assists for 22 points.

The 24-year-old Victoriaville, Que., native, a first round draft pick by Chicago in 2011, is in his third full National Hockey League season. Max Pacioretty, Nicolas Deslauriers and Alex Galchenyuk scored for the Canadiens, while the Bruins got goals from Brad Marchand, Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci.
