After spending the night in the hospital after taking a hit into the boards by Senators prospect David Dziurzynski during Saturday’s rookie competitions, Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Alex Grant was released from the hospital. Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette broke the news.
Defenseman Alex Grant, injured Saturday during a prospects-tournament game in London, Ontario, has been released from the hospital.
Penguins general manager Ray Shero said Grant was diagnosed with a broken wrist and whiplash, but that tests detected no other damage.
Grant is scheduled to be re-examined in Pittsburgh later this week.
Even in a sport as violent as hockey, I rarely hear about players suffer from whiplash, an injury normally associated with car crashes. Still, it sounds like Grant will walk away from the hit with his health mostly intact all things considered.
If Grant’s injuries are more severe once he is re-examined, we’ll pass along the news.
