Bruins Daily: Vaakanainen OK After Fall; Pastrnak; NHL News And Rumors



Boston Bruins

Thankfully former Boston Bruins and current Anaheim Ducks defenseman Urho Vaakanainen is OK after a scary fall in a preseason game on Friday night.

As San Jose Sharks center Derek Grant scored a goal, Urho Vaakanainen lost control coming into the opposite side end boards (top of video above), and slammed into them. He was carried off in a stretcher.

Thankfully the Ducks later tweeted out that he had full movement within his extremities and was fully conscious and alert.

Get well Urho!
