forward Daymond Langkow
will be out of the lineup indefinitely after being hit in the back of the neck by a shot during the second period of Sunday afternoon's game with the Minnesota Wild
, the team announced Monday.
Langkow was tangled up with a Minnesota defender in front of the net in his offensive zone when he was hit by the shot from teammate Ian White
while going down to the ice. Trainers immediately tended to him and his Calgary teammates left the bench and gathered around. A stretcher was eventually brought out and Langkow was taken to an area hospital for observation. The game was delayed for nearly 15 minutes.
While there was initially concern that Langkow couldn't move one of his legs, it was later reported that Langkow had feeling and movement in all of his extremities.
Langkow, 33, has 14 goals and 36 points in 72 games this season.
