New York Rangers player Marc Staal suffered a seriously painful looking eye injury during last night's game against the Philadephia Flyers. A shot from from a Flyers player hit him directly in the eye during the third period.
Staal, hit in the right eye by a tipped puck at the 5:45 mark of the third period, was sent to the ice in pain. He spent several minutes face-down and bleeding before he skated off on his own to the trainer's room.
He did not return to the game.
The Rangers did not provide an update after the game and it is not immediately clear whether or not the 26-year-old blue-liner was taken to the hospital for further evaluation.
