Montreal Canadiens right winger George Parros was taken off the ice on a stretcher in a scary moment after landing on the ice face first during a fight with Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colton Orr during Tuesday night's NHL season opener at the Bell Center.
It happened during the third period during the second fight of the night between Parros and Orr. During the fight, Orr slipped and fell to the ice while holding Parros' jersey, which threw Parros off balance and resulted in his fall.
Parros got to his knees with the help of medical staffers, but then dropped back down to the ice and waited for a stretcher to help him off the ice. Parros was brought to the hospital for further evaluation. According to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, the Habs announced that Parros suffered a concussion, but is awake and alert while awaiting more tests.
Parros is using his Twitter account to thank those who have reached out to wish him well, which is a good sign.
