Ducks Wisniewski Remains In Hospital After Taking Puck In Chest

By  | 

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Anaheim Ducks defenseman James Wisniewski will remain in an Orange County hospital for a second night after getting hit in the chest by a puck but is expected to be released Thursday morning.

Wisniewski was hit in the chest by Pavel Datsyuk's slap shot during the second period of Tuesday's playoff game against Detroit. He continued to skate but ultimately fell to his hands and knees while coughing blood as play stopped.

After several minutes Wisniewski was taken to a hospital where it was determined he has a lung contusion. As a standard medical precaution, Wisniewski will continued to be evaluated overnight.
