MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens' enforcer George Parros was taken from the ice on a stretcher after being pulled face-first to the ice during a fight on Tuesday night.
Parros, playing his first game for Montreal in the NHL season opener against Toronto, was in his second fight of the game with Colton Orr when he was injured.
Orr had fallen to the ice and reached up and pulled Parros down. Parros' face hit the ice heavily, and he was bleeding and looked woozy as a team of trainers spent several minutes treating him on the ice.
Bell Centre fans chanted his name as he was being treated.
There was no immediate word on his condition.
