After scary hit in game with Red Wings, Blue Jackets' Artem Anisimov heads back to Columbus

DETROIT - Columbus Blue Jackets centre Artem Anisimov has been released from a Detroit hospital after a scary hit in a game with the Red Wings on Thursday night.

Team spokesman Todd Sharrock confirmed on Friday that Anisimov is flying home to Columbus along with assistant athletic trainer Nates Goto.

"He will see our team doctors at some point but I don't know if that will be today," Sharrock said.

Anisimov was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being struck in the head by Red Wings defenceman Kyle Quincey. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after his team's 3-2 win that Anisimov was alert and stable at the hospital.

Anisimov was part of the big deal last summer which sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
