Bruins forward Nathan Horton suffered a severe concussion when he was hit in the head by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome during Monday’s Game 3, an 8-1 win for the B’s. He will now miss the rest of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Horton, who has 8 goals and 9 assists in the playoffs, was leveled five minutes into the first period when Rome, who appeared to launch toward Horton’s head (but may not have “intended” to hit his head…who knows what the NHL will say about that) and delivered a thunderous blow. Horton fell to the ice and right away it looked as if he had no idea where he was.
He was taken off the ice on a stretcher and transported to Mass. General, where he reportedly was moving all his extremities.
Rome, meanwhile, was given a 5-minute interference penalty and was ejected from the game.
Now, what will come of Aaron Rome? Watch the hit for yourself.
