During the Carolina Hurricanes’ 3-2 loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday, defenseman Dougie Hamilton left the game after getting his skates tangled with forward Kevin Stenlund and falling awkwardly on his leg.
As Hamilton fell late in the second period, his left leg bent underneath him and his full weight came down on top of it. He was unable to stand after the tumble and required help from a trainer and teammate Trevor van Riemsdyk to leave the ice. Hamilton did not return to the game.
