On the play, Savoie and Wild defenseman Alex Goligoski were pursuing a puck near the left faceoff circle when Savoie lost an edge and crashed into the boards.
He immediately screamed in pain after the collision, and was stretchered off the ice by trainers and staff. He did give the crowd a thumbs-up on the way off the ice, but concerns remain about his condition after the incident.
Savoie scored 26 goals and dished out 33 assists for the Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL last season. He was selected in the third round of the 2022 NHL Draft by the Blackhawks.
