Kassian, with his shoulder, hit Czech forward Petr Senkerik with 14:07 remaining in the second period of Canada's 7-2 victory. Senkerik dropped immediately to the ice, motionless and was wheeled off on a stretcher.

Senkerik remained in the Czech dressing room.

A few times zones away, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said he saw "one quick replay" of the play and had no immediate comment.

Here is a link to TSN's video of the hit.
