Habs’ Parros hospitalized after fight with Leafs’ Orr

Oct 1, 2013, 9:39 PM EST

Montreal Canadiens enforcer George Parros was stretchered off the ice on Tuesday after a freak-accident fall during a fight with Toronto Maple Leafs tough guy Colton OrrUpdate: Parros was taken to Montreal General Hospital in an ambulance moments later, Hockey Night in Canada’s David Amber reports.

Immediately following Parros’ fall, Orr motioned frantically to get medical attention for Parros. Parros, 33, was bleeding right away, but on the bright side, was very responsive. (In fact, he tried to leave the ice under his own power, but wasn’t allowed to by trainers.)

Now here’s better video from NHL.com:

This was actually the second fight of the night between the two. Both Parros and Orr, 31, received game misconducts. Maybe it’s a little unfair to Orr, but really, it might be better if he’s not out there for the rest of the night.

Also notable: this isn’t the first time these two have engaged in a fight in which someone was hurt during a fight. Last time, in January 2011, Orr was the one who was injured:
