Richard Zednik cut by teammate's skate

A very scary moment for Richard Zednik in the Florida Panthers game on Sunday versus the Buffalo Sabres:



Zednik was rushed to the hospital where he went into surgery. Both coaches got together to discuss whether or not to finish the game. Only when they were informed Zednik was in stable condition and on his way to the hospital did they decide to continue with the game which was eventually won by Buffalo 5-3.


It's safe to say that from that point on, the last thing on the player's minds was the score of the game--and great to hear that Zednik is in stable condition.


Do you think these rare but serious accidents are reason enough for mandatory neck-protectors to be implemented?
