It was a scary scene at Saturday’s Senators game, when Scott Sabourin was stretchered off the ice after suffering a scary injury against the Bruins. Both benches emptied in a heartwarming scene as players came over to show their support for the 27-year-old, and Sabourin gave a thumbs-up as he left the ice.

According to the Sens, Sabourin was conscious and speaking to doctors as he was transported to the hospital, where he’ll continue to stay as the rest of the team travels to New York for their next game.

It’s a scary situation, but Sabourin is cheesin’ through the pressure. Look at this guy! He doesn’t look as pretty as he did this time a day ago, but he’s an absolute warrior.


We’re sending Sabs well wishes. This is the 27-year-old’s first year in the NHL after spending the last few years grinding at the AHL level, and it’s just devastating to see him go down like this just 11 games into the season.

Sabourin has tallied a goal and an assist so far this season.
