Video: Rozsival gets tossed for devastating hit on Zucker
A scary incident in the Stadium Series game between the Wild and ‘Hawks.
Jason Zucker was left dazed after taking a huge hit from Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival.
As you can tell from the video at the top of the page, Rozsival’s hit was high, but it appears as though the damage was done when Zucker’s head hit the ice.
The Wild forward remained down for a couple of minutes. He eventually skated off the ice with some assistance.
Zucker is questionable to return, but he didn’t look like someone who’d be returning to this game.
Roszival got an interference penalty and a game misconduct for the hit.
Here’s some Twitter reaction to the hit:
