Expected high draft pick, David Reinbacher, reportedly sent to hospital after Rasmus Sandin hip check in World Championship game
Washington Capitals defenseman Rasmus Sandin delivered one of the biggest hits of his career as a member of Sweden’s World Championship team. Sandin was named to the senior Tre Kronor team for the first time in his career in April.
Sandin (no. 38 in blue) stepped up and nailed David Reinbacher (no. 64 in white) with a huge hip check as the Austrian defenseman skated the puck into the offensive zone. Sandin’s check, combined with contact from teammate Henrik Tommernes, sent Reinbacher spinning horizontally in the air before he crashed to the ice.
