Blue Jackets' Sean Kuraly collapses behind team bench after hit in scary scene

Dec 25, 2023

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Sean Kuraly needed paramedics after he collapsed Saturday night following a hit from Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Jake McCabe.

The incident occurred with less than a minute left in the first period. Kuraly was trying to go for the puck behind the Maple Leafs goaltender when McCabe hit him in the upper body in what seemed to be a routine hockey hit. Kuraly struggled to get back to the bench.

The Bally Sports broadcast watched as trainers helped Kuraly walk back to the locker room through the tunnel. Play on the ice stopped as paramedics came onto the ice and rushed into the tunnel to get to Kuraly. According to the Columbus Dispatch, Kuraly collapsed as he was helped back to the locker room.
