Injuries are an unfortunate reality in hockey, and tonight, Sean Kuraly faced a tough situation. After a hit from Jake McCabe, Kuraly took a puck to the chest, leading to what seems like a serious injury.

Clearly in pain, Kuraly signaled for the referee to stop play, but it continued. He made his way to the bench, met with a trainer, and as he headed into the team's tunnel, he suddenly slumped to the ground, prompting concerns of a medical emergency.
Teammates urgently called for a halt in the game and medical assistance. A paramedic slowly crossed the ice, and referees worked to manage the situation involving both teams.
Ultimately, the referees decided to end the period early, sending both teams to the locker room. Our thoughts are with Kuraly, and we sincerely hope he's okay.

Update before the start of the second period:

According to the Blue Jackets, the response was purely precautionary.
