After the terrible crash, Leafs’ Tavares was discharged “indefinitely”
Toronto Maple Leafs said that captain Jonathan Tavares has been discharged from the hospital and will withdraw from the playoffs “indefinitely” after a terrible collision with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.
After colliding with Ben Chiarot in Montreal during the first period, the 30-year-old was rescued from the ice by a stretcher and taken to the hospital. When he fell, Corey Perry’s knee hit his head.
Leaf said that Tavares was thoroughly checked and evaluated by the neurology team of St. Michael’s Hospital and the club’s medical director.
An article on Twitter said: “He was under observation all night and is now resting at home under the care and supervision of the team doctor. Tavares will be out indefinitely.”
