Islanders’ Sundstrom taken to hospital after hit by Canadiens’ Murray (Video)

  • Tyler Race

Montreal Canadiens’ Douglas Murray is no stranger to aggressive hockey. Back on April 1, Murray elbowed Lightening defenseman Michael Kostka, giving Kostka a concussion, and was suspended for three games. Murray returned to the ice  Thursday against the Islanders and once again, injured another player.

Midway through the second period, Murray drove Johan Sundstrom face first into the boards, as the Islanders’ rookie was controlling the puck behind the Canadiens’ net, and attempting to make a pass. The hit on Sundstrom can be viewed below:


Murray was ejected from the game with a match penalty and, according to Canadiens’ reporter Renaud Lavoie, Murray will not receive a suspension.  The Islanders announced via Twitter that Sundstrom was being taken to a hospital for further evaluation.


The Islanders defeated the Canadiens 2-0
