Montreal Canadiens prospect Blake Geoffrion was moved out of the intensive care unit at Montreal General Hospital on Sunday, according to Hockey Inside/Out’s Dave Stubbs.

Geoffrion suffered a skull fracture following a scary incident on Friday, forcing him to undergo successful surgery.

As one would expect from such a serious injury, it’s unclear how long it will take for Geoffrion to recover.

Stubbs reports that Montreal’s Bell Centre staff earned high marks for handling that situation promptly:

Canadiens head team physician and chief surgeon David Mulder, a veteran of nearly 50 years with the Canadiens family, praised the Bell Centre work of Habs head athletic therapist Graham Rynbend and of Luc LeBlanc, Rynbend’s counterpart with the Bulldogs, for their quick, efficient work on site to care for Geoffrion and get him to the Montreal General, which is world-renowned for its superb trauma care.
