DETROIT -- Calgary Flames defenseman Rasmus Andersson was sent to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle while riding a scooter in Detroit.

The team said that Andersson was riding a scooter to dinner at about 6 p.m. when he was hit.

“He was going through a crosswalk,” Flames general manager Brad Treliving said. “The good news - and the most important thing - is that Ras is doing well.”

The 26-year-old was released from hospital after undergoing a “battery of tests,” the Flames said in Twitter post.

Calgary was in Detroit for a game against the Red Wings.

The team says Andersson will remain with the team on its road trip, but is listed as day-to-day.

Andersson is in his seventh full season with the Flames and leads Calgary defensemen with 34 points in 51 games.
