Coyotes’ Burmistrov hospitalized after hit by Bruins’ Miller

Arizona Coyotes forward Alex Burmistrov was taken off the ice on a stretcher on Tuesday following a hit by Boston Bruins defenseman Colin Miller.

Update: The Coyotes announced that Burmistrov has been taken to a Boston hospital.

He was released from the hospital late on Tuesday night, according to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic.

On the bright side, Dave Vest notes that Burmistrov was able to give a “thumbs up” as he was taken off the ice. (You can see footage of that here.)

Miller received a five-minute major and game misconduct for charging, a decision that more than one onlooker questions.

Video of the hit is available up top. The latest update seems positive:
