Video: Blue Jackets’ Anisimov hospitalized after scary fall

Feb 21, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov was taken off the ice on a stretcher on Thursday after a collision with Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey.

The good news is that he was awake, alert and moving after the hit. Anisimov reportedly never lost consciousness, either. He has been hospitalized for precautionary reasons, according to Columbus Blue Jackets’ communications rep Todd Sharrock.

Here’s video of the hit:

The Windsor Star’s Bob Duff reports that Quincey also suffered an injury to his left leg during the fall and will not return. Early word is that it was an unfortunate accident, as there were no penalties called on the play.

    Hope hes ok, hate seeing stuff like this, Right away i thought of Travis Roy, and things like that, especially for that franchise it would really suck i hope he gets better.

    Definitely looked like a freak accident. I was glad to read the CBJ Twitter feed about it, because he didn’t look like he was moving or conscious at all.

    Thank god it wasn’t Matt Cooke that hit him. That would automatically change the interpretation of the hit from a “fall” as the writer calls it, or an accident mentioned in the above comments, to an intentional and flagrant attempt to injure.. Typical Hockey double standard!

      typical moron penguins fan thinking the nhl screws over a team with sid the kid and malkin…dood anisimov clearly got hurt no one gives a damn about matt cooke or the penguins brah so prolly best if u dont try and make this injury about your team somehow

        NOT a Pens fan, just a Hockey observer and what I said is most likely true as you know. Not downplaying the injury just making a correct observation so pull your hand off your choke and relax.

        Yes really! I already bought the book and it said you were a tool. That was in chapter one.

      Amazing how fans can’t even express concern and send well wishes without some Pucker trying to brew up a Penguins controversy.

      Hope Arty is doing well this morning, certainly enjoyed him as a Ranger. It was nice to see the Jackets pick him up yesterday with the comeback.

        Not a Pens fan. Just a Hockey observer but, as most on here you jump to conclusions. AND what I said was probably true.

    That was to puckyouall , by the way.

    Any word on possible concussion symptoms? We can only hope not, but his head hit the ice pretty hard… scary. Here’s hoping for a quick recovery!
