The New York Rangers winger Sean Avery suffered a lacerated spleen during Tuesday night's game with the Pittsburgh Penguins, which resulted in him ending up in a New York hospital immediately following the game three loss to the Penguins.
Early reports on the health scare had Avery being rushed by amublance to hospital in a state of cardiac arrest, but the Rangers have since clarified many of the wilder rumours circulating about the wingers state of health, both pre and post hospital trip.
The Rangers couldn't identify at what point in the game that Avery was injured after a hit, though he wasn't playing his particularly agitating style of play since the midway point of game three on Tuesday.
He's listed by the Rangers as done for the season, though a full recovery is expected to take place in the off season.
