Hawks' Connor Murphy stretchered off ice after big hit


Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Connor Murphy was stretchered off the ice in Saturday's game against the Ottawa Senators after taking a big hit from Parker Kelly.

Kelly roughly checked Murphy into the glass in the corner side of the rink just under three minutes into the game. Murphy's face was smashed right up against the glass.

Erik Gustafsson, Brandon Hagel and MacKenzie Entwistle immediately called to the bench for medical attention.

The Blackhawks medical and athletic training staff attended to Murphy and he was able to move his feet before being placed on the stretcher.

The fans at Canadian Tire Centre gave Murphy a standing ovation as he gave the thumbs- up sign from the stretcher.

Kelly received a five-minute penalty for the check.
