Blackhawks' Jujhar Khaira released from hospital


After undergoing further testing, Jujhar Khaira was released from Northwestern Hospital on Wednesday morning and returned home, the Blackhawks announced. He is expected to make a full recovery.

"Despite the significant injury, his prognosis is excellent, and we expect a full recovery," team physician Michael Terry said in a statement. "At this point, it is too early to put a timeline on return to play."

It's terrific news for Khaira, who left Tuesday's game on a stretcher after taking a high hit from New York Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba. It was a scary scene.

"Personally, I was pretty shaken," Jonathan Toews said following the 6-2 loss. "I’m not going to lie to you. Just glad to hear he’s doing OK."
