Sabourin returns to Ottawa

4 novembre 2019
The Ottawa Senators say Scott Sabourin has returned to the city after the horrific incident Saturday night where he was stretchered from the ice in Boston after colliding with Bruins forward David Backes. According to the team, Sabourin will continue his recovery in Ottawa and be monitored by the team's medical staff. There's no timeline for a potential return to action at the moment.



Sabourin spent the night in a Boston hospital following the collision. He was released the next day. Sens GM Pierre Dorion said Sunday Sabourin suffered a broken nose, among other injuries, but appeared to be doing well. Sabourin sent out an Instagram message from his hospital bed Saturday night thanking people for their support and saying he was looking forward to getting back on the ice. That post has since been removed from his account.

Sabourin had to be stretchered off after he landed face-first on the ice following a collision with Backes early in Saturday's contest. He appeared to be out before his head hit the ice likely due to knocking helmets with Backes. If you have not yet seen the incident, it can be viewed here. Backes was clearly shaken up after the hit and went to the back with tears in his eyes. He did not return. The Bruins say he suffered an upper-body injury of his own on the play and will likely need a couple of games at least before returning to action.

The road to the NHL for Sabourin hasn't been an easy one. The 27-year-old was never drafted, and since 2012-13 he has played most of his career in the AHL, except for three games in the ECHL in 2015-16. This season marked his first time playing in an NHL regular season game. He had suited up in 11 for Ottawa, netting a goal and adding an assist, before Saturday night.
