Referee hit in the nose by puck in game between Sabres and Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Referee Trevor Hanson has left a game between the Buffalo Sabres and Phoenix Coyotes after being hit in the nose by a puck.

Hanson was in the corner late in the second period Thursday night, when a shot by Coyotes defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson caromed off the crossbar and hit Hanson in the nose.

Hanson doubled over in pain and skated to Phoenix's bench, where he was given a towel. Holding the towel to his face, Hanson was helped down the Coyotes tunnel to receive medical attention.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
